IDF spokesperson confirms to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that it was an Israeli strike that hit the Jabalia refugee camp.

I want to ask you first about this massive blast that we all just saw. We saw the video at the Jabalia refugee camp in Gaza. Is there anything more you could, first of all, tell us about how this explosion happened? All right. Well, thanks for having me. So we'll be coming out in the next, hopefully, hour with more data. But I can update you now that there was a very senior Hamas commander in that area. Sadly, he was hiding, again, as they do, behind, within civilians. And that's all I can say at this point. We're looking into it, and we'll be coming out with more data as we learn what happened there. So can you confirm it was an Israeli attack that destroyed a big chunk of that Jabalia refugee camp? Yes, I can. We were focused, again, on a target, a senior commander wolf. And we'll be updating you with more data as the hour moves ahead. But even if that Hamas commander was there amidst all those Palestinian refugees who were in that Jabalia refugee camp, Israel still went ahead and dropped a bomb there attempting to kill this Hamas commander, knowing that a lot of innocent civilians, men, women, and children, presumably, would be killed. Is that what I'm hearing? That's not what you're hearing, Wolf. We, again, we're focused on this commander, again, you'll get more data who this man was. He killed many, many Israelis. We're doing everything we can. It's a very complicated battle space. There could be infrastructure there. There could be tunnels there. We're still looking into it. And we'll give you more data as the hour moves ahead. But you know that there are a lot of refugees, a lot of innocent civilians, men, women, and children in that refugee camp as well, right? This is the tragedy of war, Wolf. I mean, we, as you know, we've been saying for days, move south. Civilians that are not involved with Hamas, please move south. I'm just trying to get a little bit more information. You knew there were civilians there. You knew there were refugees, all sorts of refugees, but you decided to still drop a bomb on that refugee camp attempting to kill the Hamas commander. By the way, was he killed? I can't confirm yet. There'll be more updated. Yes, we know that he was killed. About the civilians there, we're doing everything we can to minimize. I'll tell you, I'll say it again, badly, they are hiding themselves within civilian population. And again, we are doing this stage by stage, and we're going to go after every one of these terrorists who was involved in that heinous attack on the 7th of October.
