As a news source, that raises two questions: 1) How do you not know Hamas was using the proximity of the building to fire rockets while using the civilians as shields, or 2) Why were they complicit in defending Hamas using civilians as shields by not reporting?
The AP in Gaza gas been long co-opted by Hamas in Gaza. Of course they didn’t know!
Matti Friedman at The Atlantic has reporting on the media’s issues with objectivity in Gaza going back to 2014.
The building was a Hamas intel hub and AP knew they were there. Hamas’ presence made the building a legitimate, legal military target, and the AP and Al Jazeera have some explaining to do - not the IDF.
