The Middle East is at a dangerous moment as the Iranian backed Lebanese militia group Hezbollah has called for a “day of rage.”
The Palestinian militant group Hamas blamed the deadly missile attack on the hospital in southern Gaza on Israel.
Hamas called that attack on the hospital a “massacre” and the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) blamed the strike on a misfired rocket on the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).
Hezbollah who are a staunch ally of Hamas said, on Tuesday evening, “Let tomorrow, Wednesday, be a day of rage against the enemy,” calling on Arabs and fellow Muslims to “move immediately to streets and squares to express intense anger.”

AFP correspondents said that after the call hundreds of demonstrators gather at the US Embassy in Awkar, Beirut and chanted “death to America” and “death to Israel.”
Tear gas was fired by Lebanese security forces as they also threw stones at the embassy and hundreds also gathered at the French Embassy in the capital raising Palestinian flags.
In the southern cities of Sidon and Tyre in Lebanon at Palestinian refugee camps anger flared up to condemn the hospital attack to which Hamas claims killed more than 500 people.
The leader of Hamas Ismail Haniyeh called on all Palestinian people to “get out and confront the occupation and the settlers.”
Haniyeh has directly blamed the US who hold “the responsibility of the hospital attack because of the cover it gives to Israeli aggression.”
The Hamas leader said it was a “massacre” and warned that this is a “new turning point” in the conflict in the Middle East.
Haniyeh added, “Anyone who supports Israel is responsible for the violations in Gaza.
“If the enemy thinks that these massacres will hide his great defeat or force our people to surrender, he is mistaken.”
There has also been protests across the Arab world in the aftermath of the hospital attack with demonstrators taking to the street in Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon and the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.
Footage has shown protests in Yemen’s southwestern city of Taz, Iraq’s capital Baghdad and in Rabat, Morocco’s capital.
