The executive editor of the Associated Press wants an independent investigation into the Zionist entity’s bombing of a building in Gaza that was home to her news organization as well as broadcaster al-Jazeera.

Sally Buzbee said her organization had not yet seen any evidence from ‘Israeli’ officials to justify the bombing, which levelled the 12-storey al-Jalaa tower block on Saturday.

Zionist officials claimed they carried out the strike because Hamas was operating an intelligence cell out of that office building.

“We’ve heard the ‘Israelis’ say they have evidence,” she told CNN’s Reliable Sources program on Sunday. “We don’t know what that evidence is. We think it is appropriate at this point for there to be an independent look at what happened.”

Speaking on Sunday on CBS’ Face the Nation program, Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed there was an intelligence office for the Palestinian organization there.

Buzbee told CNN that while her journalists were unhurt and were now operating out of Agence France-Presse’s offices in Gaza, the attack destroyed a critical node for newsgathering out of the territory.

“We’re in favor and what we do believe in is protecting the world’s right to know what is going on in this conflict or any conflict. This is an important story and because of the actions yesterday, the world is going to know less,” she said.
