ISRAEL has released the bombshell recording of a phone call between two Hamas terrorists and drone footage that “proves” the deadly Gaza hospital explosion was caused by a misfired Islamic Jihad rocket.
The country has vehemently denied responsibility for a catastrophic airstrike on the al-Ahli Hospital on Tuesday which claimed the lives of at least 500.

Instead, they alleged the fatal blast was the result of a failed rocket launched by Hamas.
But following the tragic hospital explosion, Biden reportedly told Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the blast appeared to have been done “by the other team, not you.”
Netanyahu, meanwhile, said that “the barbaric terrorists in Gaza are responsible for the attack on the Gaza hospital, not the IDF.
“The people who brutally murdered our children are murdering their own children too”.
But in a shocking retaliation, The Israel Defense Forces released a recording from a wiretapped phone call between two operatives working within the Palestinian militant group.
Posting the clip to X, formerly known as Twitter, they wrote: “Islamic Jihad struck a Hospital in Gaza – the IDF did not.
“Listen to the terrorists as they realize this themselves”.
The audio recording begins with the first Hamas operative saying: “I’m telling you this is the first time that we see a missile like this falling”.
A second militant responds: “And so that’s why we are saying it belongs to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad”.
The first speaker says: “What?, before the other replies: “They are saying it belongs to Palestinian Islamic Jihad”.
“It’s from us?” asks the first Hamas operative, to which he is met with the response: “It looks like it!”
As the chilling phone call continues, the second speaker explains that the shrapnel from the rocket missile was “local shrapnel and not like Israeli shrapnel”.
Hundreds of people were reportedly seeking shelter at the hospital at the time of the blast – including around 6,000 Palestinians.
Hamas operative two butts in again after a few seconds of silence and says: “But God bless, it couldn’t have found another place to explode?”.
The recording also reveals that the Islamic Jihad terror organisation had fired the deadly rocket from “the cemetery behind the hospital”.
“They shot it coming from the cemetery behind the al-Ma’amadani Hospital, and it misfired and fell on them,” said the first operative.
The pair then discuss the cemetery’s location before the second speaker admits to knowing of it.
The recording was one of several pieces of evidence Israel has used to deny its involvement in the hospital blast.
Two hours before the IDF posted the recording to X, they shared drone footage from the Israeli Air Force [IAF] that compared the al-Ahli Hospital both before and after the overnight destruction.
“A failed rocket launch by the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization hit the Al Ahli hospital in Gaza City,” they wrote.
“IAF footage from the area around the hospital before and after the failed rocket launch by the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization”.
The drone clip shows the hospital compound after the blast with the absence of a crater and a lack of damage to surrounding buildings that would have been apparent had it been an Israeli rocket.
This morning, the Israeli army also released ariel photos to “prove” that there were no signs of Israeli planes striking the hospital.
According to IDF Spokesperson Daniel Hagari, who briefed the foreign press early today, the army’s assessment is based on “intelligence information from several sources.”
The statement goes on to say that “from the analysis of the IDF’s operational systems, an enemy rocket barrage was launched towards Israel and passed in the vicinity of the hospital when it was hit.”
Hagari added that “intelligence from a few sources that we have in our hands indicates that Islamic Jihad is responsible for the failed rocket launch which hit the hospital in Gaza.
“I repeat this is the responsibility of Islamic jihad that killed innocents in the hospital in Gaza.”
Also posted by the IDF as they continue to stand their ground and reiterate their innocence, was a video showing a rocket misfiring and exploding in Gaza – coincidentally at the same moment the hospital was stuck.
“A rocket aimed at Israel misfired and exploded at 18:59—the same moment a hospital was hit in Gaza,” they wrote on X.
The video shows a rocket exploding in the air before hurtling groundward from the sky.
It’s unclear what exactly was hit by the misfired rocket in the video.
IDF spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus told CNN that Israel “categorically” does not intentionally strike any sensitive facilities – including hospitals.
“We did not strike that, and the intelligence that we have suggests that it was a failed rocket launch by the Islamic Jihad,” he said.
Horror footage from the hospital showed the blaze engulfing the building, with the hospital’s grounds littered with bodies, many of them young children.
But while Israel and Palestine continue to play the blame game, Hamas has denied any involvement in the rocket launch.
A spokesman for Islamic Jihad said this is “completely incorrect” and accused the IDF of “trying to cover for the horrifying crime and massacre they committed”.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said early this morning that targeting the al-Ahli Hospital was a “hideous war massacre” that cannot be tolerated.
“Israel has crossed all red lines. … We will not leave nor allow anyone to expel us from there”, he added.
