The Israeli military has shared raw footage, revealing the moment a rocket misfired and exploded just as the Gaza hospital was hit, killing 500 people.

“A rocket targeting Israel misfired and exploded at 6:59 p.m., just as a hospital was hit in Gaza,” the Israeli army wrote on Twitter.

The video shows a rocket exploding in the air before descending below.

Israel has denied responsibility for Tuesday’s explosion at al-Ahli hospital in Gaza City, saying it was a failed rocket by Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists.

An Islamic Jihad spokesperson blamed Israel for the attack and accused the IDF of “trying to cover up the horrific crime and massacre they committed against civilians.”

IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus told CNN that Israel would “categorically” not strike any sensitive installations, including hospitals.

“We did not hit this, and the intelligence we have suggests that this was a botched rocket attack by Islamic Jihad, and I want to categorically add that we are not intentionally hitting sensitive installations, sensitive facilities, and certainly not hospitals,” he said.

Video from the hospital showed a fire ravaging the building and hospital grounds littered with bodies, including many young children.

Hundreds of people were said to have taken refuge in hospital at the time of the explosion. Around 6,000 Palestinians have taken refuge in this hospital, which is said to be financed by the Anglican Church.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and King Abdullah II of Jordan canceled their Arab summit with President Joe Biden, scheduled for Wednesday, due to outrage over the explosion.

Hours after the incident, the White House and the Jordanian government announced the cancellation of the meeting.

Following the hospital explosion, the United States also raised its travel advisory for Lebanon after pro-Palestinian protesters marched to and set fire to the US embassy in Lebanon.

Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Egypt and other Arab countries condemned the hospital explosion, which remains under investigation.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi said the hospital explosion was “a blatant violation of international law… and humanity.”

Iran-backed Hezbollah, which waged war against Israel in 2006, called for a day of protest in Beirut on Tuesday in response to the attack.

In response, the State Department told DailyMail.com that travel restrictions in Lebanon were being raised to “Level 4.”

“The department has authorized the voluntary and temporary departure of family members of U.S. government personnel and certain non-emergency personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Beirut due to the unpredictable security situation in Lebanon,” the statement said.

People are also advised to avoid the border with Syria due to terrorism and armed conflict, as well as the border with Israel and refugee camps.

Thousands of Lebanese protesters, some waving Palestinian flags, gathered outside the US Embassy on Tuesday evening in response to the incident. The soldiers released gas and smoke to repel them.

The video shows the protester climbing a fence topped with barbed wire to replace an American flag with a Palestinian version. A fire also broke out near the complex. Later, footage showed gas being sprayed at protesters to push them back.

It is unclear whether protesters breached the perimeter fence or whether embassy staff were injured.
