Deputy National Security Adviser Jon Finer did not directly answer questions about the Israeli raid on Shifa Hospital in Gaza, which the Qatari Prime Minister called a "crime". Israeli officials released images of what they said were Hamas fighters taking captured Israeli military vehicles to the hospital on the same day, resulting in hundreds of patients, including 31 premature babies, having to be evacuated. Finer noted that several civilians took refuge at the hospital during the conflict, sparking a debate over whether Israel is breaking international law.
