They say that like it’s a bad thing.

IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Hidai Zilberman deflects criticism of the bombing of media office building in the Gaza Strip.

IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Hidai Zilberman deflected criticism of the military’s actions in the Gaza Strip on Sunday and particularly the bombing of a building with media offices on Saturday.

“I want to see what would happen if one rocket was fired on Washington. They are firing salvos toward civilian populations,” Zilberman said when asked about the strike on the building that was home to the Associated Press and Al Jazeera offices in Gaza. “We are in the middle of an operation. If Hamas and PIJ think they can hide behind the media, their buildings are not something they can hide behind.”

The IDF said the building held the offices of Hamas’s military intelligence as well as other offices belonging to Palestinian Islamic Jihad. The IDF has refused requests to reveal the evidence upon which it determined that Hamas was using the office building for terrorist activity.
