JERUSALEM — Palestinian officials say separate Israeli airstrikes have hit the compound of Gaza City’s main hospital, causing casualties. The report comes from the Gaza police operations room and a Palestinian health official. Camera crews were prevented from filming the area of impact at Shifa Hospital.

The Israeli military has denied its forces were responsible for the attack. 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.
