White House: White House: US did not give OK for storming hospital

SAN FRANCISCO: The US did not give Israel any kind of green light for its raid on Gaza’s main hospital, the White House said Wednesday, adding that such decisions were for the Israeli military. “We did not give an OK to their military operations around the hospital,” National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told reporters after Hamas said President Joe Biden was “wholly responsible” for the raid.
Biden spoke to Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday but Kirby declined to say whether the US president had been given forewarning of the offensive. “I won’t go into detail about the conversation,” he said, adding however that “there’s no expectation by the US to map it all out.”
