The Associated Press has no ties to Hamas whatsoever. It’s outraged at the very notion and would like to see any classified evidence you may have on this subject so it can pass it on to the guys in the basement who have large guns and keep shouting, “Allahu Akbar”.
Also here’s an exclusive Hamas interview for AP in which the Muslim Brotherhood terror group boasts that it could keep fighting forever.
As the Gaza fighting wound down and expectations of a truce rose, a senior Hamas official said in an interview Thursday that the Palestinian militant group has “no shortage of missiles” and could continue bombarding Israel for months if it chose to do so.
It conveniently says this just in time for the Biden cease-fire pressure to kick in. A cease-fire meant specifically to save Hamas.
On Saturday, an Israeli strike destroyed the 12-story al-Jalaa Building, an office and residential tower where the offices of the AP and the TV network Al-Jazeera were located. The military gave a warning ahead of the strike and occupants evacuated safely.
The AP has called for an independent investigation. AP President and CEO Gary Pruitt has said in statement that the AP had no indication of a Hamas presence in the building. “This is something we actively check to the best of our ability,” he said.
Hamdan denied there was any military presence belonging to Hamas or any other armed group in the building.
The AP’s exclusive interview with a Hamas leader denying that the terror group was in the building should uh put your mind at ease about something.
I’m not sure what.
Gen. Esmail Ghaani, who heads Iran’s expeditionary Quds Force, sent letters to Deif and a commander of the Iran-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad group, praising “their resistance” against Israel, according to state media in Tehran.
“We will stand by you,” Ghaani said in the letters to the Palestinian commanders.
So will the AP.
