Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday slammed those who claimed that reporters with the Associated Press were “lucky” to get out of a building over the weekend that Israel’s military leveled, saying that they weren’t “lucky” because Israel warned them and told them to get out of the building.
“The interesting thing is I would say that, you know, all the journalists, one of the, I think, AP journalists said we were lucky to get out,” Netanyahu said on CBS News’ “Face The Nation.”
“No, you weren’t lucky to get out. It wasn’t luck,” Netanyahu continued. “It’s because we took special pains to call people in those buildings to make sure that the premises were vacated. And that’s why we brought down that building.”
