US President Joe Biden has arrived in Israel to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He pledges US support and says last night’s hospital attack in Gaza “appears” to have been caused “by the other team”. Israel says the blast on Tuesday evening was caused by a rocket misfired by Palestinian militants. The IDF says its evidence shows a Palestinian Islamic Jihad rocket, fired from a cemetery, landed in the hospital car park. Hamas, Palestinian authorities, and other countries blame Israel for the explosion, which Hamas says killed 500 people. Israel has carried out air strikes on targets across Gaza since the Hamas attacks on 7 October. The IDF says at least 450 rockets fired from Gaza since then have landed on Gazan territory.
