AP CEO Rants Against Israel for Destroying Its Building, but Why Did AP Share a Building with Hamas?
CBN - The CEO of the Associated Press (AP) lashed out at Israel for bombing a building that housed the AP's offices in Gaza, but a key fact has been ignored in much of the reporting. Israel reports the building also housed the Hamas terrorist group's headquarters for the area.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told CBS's Face the Nation on Sunday morning, "An intelligence office for the Palestinian terrorist organization (was) housed in that building that plots and organizes the terror attacks against Israeli civilians." AP's CEO G.R. Pruitt questioned that, writing, "The Israeli government says the building contained Hamas military intelligence assets. We have called on the Israeli government to put forward the evidence."
But Netanyahu said any building used by Hamas "is a perfectly legitimate target. I can tell you that we took every precaution to make sure that there were no civilian injuries, in fact, no deaths."
