President Biden dismissed allegations linking Israel to the recent explosion at al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in Gaza City. He refuted reports suggesting that U.S. troops would support Israel against Hezbollah, labeling them as false. Biden expressed confidence in the Defense Department's intelligence, which concluded that the blast was not caused by Israel.
The incident, resulting from an Israeli airstrike, drew condemnation across the Arab world. Consequently, a scheduled summit between Biden and regional leaders in Jordan was canceled. Israel countered, attributing the explosion to a rocket misfire.
Biden clarified, "Our Defense Department indicates it's highly unlikely that Israelis were involved. I'm not asserting Hamas deliberately did it either. It's a matter of precision – the need to shoot straight."
