The bombing of a hospital in Gaza and opening statements in the trial over the death of Ashling Murphy dominate Wednesday's front pages.

The Irish Times leads with: 'Hundreds killed after strike on hospital in Gaza City'.


The Irish Examiner follows suit, adding that the strike was the 'bloodiest single incident' since recent air strikes began.

The Echo reports on findings from the Health Information and Quality Authority (Hiqa) that a patient waited almost 70 hours for a bed at Mercy University Hospital in Cork.


Meanwhile, the Irish Daily Mail, Irish Sun and Irish Daily Mirror all give their lead to the trial of Jozef Puska, who is accused of the murder of Ashling Murphy.


In the UK, the nation’s papers are led by the destruction of the hospital in Gaza City.

The story features on the front of The Guardian, The Independent, the Daily Express and the i, while the Financial Times says Gaza’s health ministry claimed it was the result of an Israeli air strike.


However, Israel has insisted the blast was caused by a misfired rocket from jihadi militants, according to the Daily Mail.

The Times reports the incident has sparked “outrage”, while the Daily Mirror says “This must end”.

The Telegraph leads with the blast coinciding with US president Joe Biden’s arrival in Israel.

Elsewhere, The Sun carries images of the inside of a house where a British mother and daughter were killed by Hamas.

Metro leads with a plea from the mother of a hostage captured by Hamas for help in bringing her daughter home.

And the Daily Star says Britain is on alert over large numbers of Chinese crabs.
