Netanyahu, Biden speak after Israel flattens AP news office in
Gaza: statement

JERUSALEM, May 15, 2021 (BSS/AFP) – Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu told US President Joe Biden that Israel did its utmost to
safeguard civilians in its Gaza bombing campaign, after an air strike
demolished a tower hosting the Associated Press news agency.

“Netanyahu stressed that Israel is doing everything to avoid
harming those uninvolved,” a readout from the Israeli premier’s office
said.

“The proof is that towers containing terror sites are cleared of
uninvolved people prior to being attacked.”
