Everything we know about the Gaza hospital strike


In a conflict already freighted with allegations of war crimes, a strike on a Gaza City hospital on Tuesday has divided opinion, set back hopes for a diplomatic end to fighting and deepened global anguish over the prospect of more civilian deaths.

The early evening blast at the al-Ahli Hospital killed 471 and injured more than 300, a spokesman for Gaza’s Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qudra, told The Washington Post. Israel has disputed that death toll.

Palestinian and Israeli officials blame each other for the blast, which was the single deadliest incident for civilians in Gaza since the war began, coming 10 days after Hamas’s Oct. 7 cross-border attack on Israel.
