On Sunday, one of the leading editors at the AP (Associated Press) demanded an independent examination into Israel’s air attack that vandalized a Gaza city building housing the Associated Press, Al Jazeera, and several other media agencies, saying the people deserve to meet with the facts.
Buzbee described that the Associated Press had acquired its offices in the al-Jalaa building for around fifteen years. Moreover, it was never enlightened or had any sign that Hamas hopefully in the tower. Buzbee added that the ‘facts must be laid out.’
She said that they are in a skirmish situation, and they don’t take sides in that battle. She continued that they heard Israelis said they have strong evidence, and they do not know what that evidence is.
Buzbee further explained that they think it is appropriate at this position for there to be an independent look at what occurred yesterday, an independent examination.
Building housed intelligence agency of Hamas – Netanyahu
On Sunday, in remarks, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu reiterated the country’s claim that the building contained an intelligence agency of Hamas. In a phone call, when asked if he had relayed assisting evidence of that with American President Joe Biden, Israeli Prime Minister explained that they pass it through their intelligence people.
In a letter to the court’s main attorney, the Paris-based Reporters Without Borders (also known by RSF), explained that the agencies of twenty-three international and local media firms have been vandalized in the previous 6 days.
RSF described that it held a solid reason to think that Israel’s military’s international targeting of media firms and devastation of their apparatus could break court’s statutes. Furthermore, it further described that the assaults serve to lessen, if not neutralize, the media organization’s capacity to inform the people.
Buzbee described that the Associated Press’ reporters were stunned after the attack, but they are doing well and reporting the news, and she showed threat about the impact on news coverage. She added that this does affect the world’s right to know what is going on both sides of the skirmish in real-time.
