US President Joe Biden said Tuesday that an “errant rocket” fired by a “terrorist group” caused a devastating explosion at a Gaza hospital that left hundreds dead.

“Based on the information we’ve seen to date, it appears as a result of an errant rocket fired by a terrorist group in Gaza,” Biden told reporters at the end of a short trip to show solidarity with Israel after the October 7 Hamas attacks.

Hamas has said Israel caused the deaths.
