North Korea has accused Israel of masterminding the ongoing violence between themselves and Hamas and claiming the US is an accomplice.

The accusation stems from the recent explosion near al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in the Gaza Strip, for which North Korean media holds Israel responsible.

A foreign ministry spokesperson stated that 'Israel's such criminal act was openly committed under the undisguised patronage of the US.'

The spokesperson further accused the US of conniving with and fostering Israel's genocide.

Hamas has also claimed that Israel was behind the explosion, but the source of the rocket remains disputed.

President Biden, in a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, stated that based on intelligence networks' belief, the explosion was caused by a misfire from Gaza militants themselves.

Following an investigation, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) provided their findings, indicating that terrorists in Gaza fired a barrage of rockets near the al-Ahli Baptist hospital, leading to its destruction.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong Un have also voiced criticism of US intervention in Israel, strengthening relations between their countries.

The narrative surrounding the ongoing violence in Gaza continues to evolve, with various parties presenting their perspectives.
