Biden arrives in Israel in aftermath of hospital bombing

Turkey has criticised Israel after the explosion at a Gaza hospital on Tuesday, accusing the country of launching a “barbaric attack” against civilians. 

The Turkish foreign ministry said late on Tuesday that the country is “deeply indignant that hundreds of Palestinians lost their lives and many more were injured as a result of the targeting of a hospital in Gaza today, and we condemn these barbaric attacks in the strongest terms”. The statement came after president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan called the incident in Gaza “the latest example of Israel’s attacks [which are] devoid of the most basic human values.” 

The explosion at the Al Ahli hospital in Gaza City ignited protests across several cities in Turkey, a predominantly Muslim country of 85mn people.

Israel says its intelligence shows Islamic Jihad, an Islamist militant group also based in Gaza, was responsible for the explosion.
