EDITORS NOTE: Please be advised that a new report out of Israel claims that the Israeli military provided an alleged intel report to the Americans indicating that the media was housing Hamas militants in the building that has since been destroyed. We are advising our readers that the Israeli government’s words should be taken with a grain of salt as both media outlets have denied such a claim and the government has not proven their extraordinary claim. Their claim has not been proven in any capacity and should be considered propaganda at this time.
A new report published Sunday appears to contradict the Associated Press that they weren’t actually housing Hamas militants alongside their media outlet in Gaza. According to the Jerusalem Post, so-called sources have now come out close to the government claiming that they actually provided America intel to prove it before they attacked.
The Jerusalem Post reported on Sunday.
“We showed them the smoking gun proving Hamas worked out of that building,” the newspaper reported, citing a source close to Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi. “I understand they found the explanation satisfactory.”
“We’re still in a positive place when it comes to our legitimacy to act,” the Jerusalem Post quoted the source. “There is very clear support for the Israeli stance that the terrorism crossed a line.”
