Demonstrators have forcefully entered Israeli embassies in Jordan, Turkey, and several other predominantly Islamic nations following a devastating hospital bombing in the Gaza Strip. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vehemently denied any involvement of the Israeli Defense Forces in the attack, instead attributing it to a third-party jihadist group known as Islamic Jihad.
Israeli authorities assert that a rocket fired by this group triggered a catastrophic explosion when it was intercepted by the Iron Dome defense system, subsequently falling onto a weapons stockpile near the hospital. While most Muslim nations have collectively pointed fingers at Israel, insisting that it was a targeted airstrike, Netanyahu’s government maintains their innocence.

As international media, including Al Jazeera, reported a death toll soaring into the hundreds, waves of protests and riots have erupted across the Islamic world.
In Jerusalem, the sound of gunfire echoed as West Bank demonstrators clashed with Palestinian Authority security forces and possibly Israeli Defense Forces border personnel. Protests have also erupted in Lebanon, with supporters of Hezbollah gathering outside the Israeli, U.S., and French embassies.
In Jordan, protesters forcefully entered the Israeli consulate and set fires in the vicinity. Meanwhile, in Ankara, demonstrators made an attempt to breach the Israeli embassy, though Turkish officials urged the crowd to disperse.
Late on Tuesday night, a multitude of demonstrators assembled outside the US embassy in Lebanon, with thousands present. Some of these protesters were seen waving Palestinian flags in response to a recent incident.
Video footage depicted a protester scaling a fence lined with barbed wire to replace a US flag with a Palestinian one, and a fire was ignited in the vicinity. Subsequently, additional footage showed the deployment of gas to disperse the demonstrators.
DailyMail.com has made efforts to contact the State Department for a statement regarding the situation. Presently, it remains unclear whether any demonstrators breached the embassy’s perimeter fence or if any embassy staff members sustained injuries.
