New York, NY – Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan tweeted that he visited the AP HQ in New York to explain to top executives that the building housing their Gaza operation was being used by Hamas terrorists trying to jam the Iron Dome – that is why it was prioritize by the IDF during last month’s operations.

He also suggests Israel could help the international news agency rebuild its offices in the coastal enclave.

The Israeli strike on the tower was widely condemned. The AP denied knowledge of any Hamas presence in the building.
