Media: 22 people were killed and dozens injured in shooting incidents in the American state of Maine

American media reported that at least 22 people were killed and dozens injured as a result of several shooting incidents in the city of Lewiston, Maine.
Security sources told NBC on Wednesday evening that there were between 50 and 60 injured as a result of the incidents, but it is not clear how many people were injured by gunshots specifically.

The local police confirmed that the shooter was at large, and asked all institutions to close their doors, and called on residents to remain at home.


The local police office published a photo of the suspect, armed with an automatic rifle.

According to local media, the police dealt with separate shooting incidents in several places, including near a restaurant and another near the Walmart mall.


Following the incident, local officials in the neighboring city of Auburn, which is only 3 km from Lewiston, warned that there was an ongoing shooting incident, and called on residents to show caution.

A White House official announced that President Joe Biden had been briefed on the incident in Maine.

Maine Governor Janet Mills also confirmed that she had been informed of the situation, noting that she was in constant contact with security officials.

It is noteworthy that Lewiston is the second largest city in the state of Maine in the northeastern United States.




The New York Times: The missile that targeted the Baptist Hospital was not launched from Gaza

The New York Times refuted the Israeli army's account that the Baptist Hospital missile was launched from Gaza, indicating that the missile in the video that the army relied on was not launched from the Gaza Strip.
The American newspaper said in a report entitled: “A closer look at some of the key evidence in the Gaza Hospital explosion,” that “the video shows a shell penetrating the dark Gaza sky and exploding in the air. Seconds later, another explosion was seen on the ground.”

She noted, "This footage has become widely cited evidence, as Israeli and American officials confirmed that a stray Palestinian missile malfunctioned in the sky, fell to the ground and caused a fatal explosion at the Baptist Hospital in Gaza City."

She confirmed that “the detailed visual analysis it conducted concluded that the video clip taken from the Al Jazeera TV camera, which was broadcast live on the night of October 17, shows something else. It is likely that the missile that appears in the video is not the one that caused the explosion in the hospital,” indicating that “The bomb, which exploded in the sky approximately two miles away, was not connected to the fighting that broke out on the border between Israel and Gaza that night.”


The newspaper explained that “its findings do not answer the real reason behind the hospital explosion, or who is responsible,” stressing that its analysis “casts doubt on one of the most widespread pieces of evidence that Israeli officials used to prove their case, and further complicates the direct story they presented.” ".
