By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Israel claims to have shared ‘smoking gun’ evidence with the US that Hamas used the destroyed building that housed The Associated Press and Al Jazeera in Gaza City, as news organisations demand answers.
Government officials said the Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu shared a ‘smoking gun’ with US President Joe Biden in their phone call on Saturday.
A source close to Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi said: ‘We showed them the smoking gun proving Hamas worked out of that building’.
He added Biden had ‘found the explanation satisfactory’, without providing details of the evidence. He said the intelligence had not been shared more widely because the US were the only country to request more information on the strike on the Al Jalaa building, the Jerusalem Post reported.
The Israeli Air Force dropped three bombs on the building, collapsing it in a giant cloud of dust, on Saturday afternoon after giving journalists a one hour warning to evacuate the premises.
