JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military has denied its forces were responsible for an attack on a hospital and a nearby park in the Gaza Strip. It says rockets misfired by Palestinian militants were to blame.

A Palestinian health official says at least 10 people, including children, were killed in Monday's strikes.

The Israeli military says that both Gaza's main hospital, Shifa, and a nearby park "were struck by failed rocket attacks" launched by Gaza militants.

Earlier, the Palestinian health official Ayman Sahabani and the Gaza police operations room said separate airstrikes hit the park and the hospital.
