IDF says Palestinian media reports of drone strike on Shifa Hospital in Gaza are false.

An explosion in a park in northern Gaza Monday killed eight children and two adults and wounded 40 others, Palestinian medics said Monday.

The IDF denied responsibility for the blast, saying it was a misfire by a failed Hamas rocket, and not an IAF air strike, as local Palestinians claimed.

“We came out of the mosque when I saw the children playing with their toy guns. Seconds later a missile landed,” said Munther al-Derbi, a resident of the Beach refugee camp near the park.

Another explosion at approximately the same time shook the grounds of Gaza’s main Shifa hospital, without causing any casualties. The IDF also blamed the blast on an errant Hamas missile.
