IDF Spokesman Hidai Zilberman insists the army is “100 percent certain” that the Al Jala building demolished by the IDF on Saturday held “military assets” used by Hamas.
The building housed the offices of several media organizations, including the Associated Press, which is demanding an independent investigation into the incident.
In a Channel 12 interview, Zilberman is asked why US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says he has still not received promised Israeli evidence to that effect.
“In the coming days, we will do everything we’ve been asked in order to make clear that it was appropriate to destroy this building,” he says.
He specifies that Hamas used it for R&D and intel purposes, and that it was used by the Islamic Jihad terror group as well.
Zilberman also says that the IDF’s ongoing bombardment of Hamas’s tunnel infrastructure is forcing key leaders of the terror group above ground, “where they can be targeted.”
