WASHINGTON (AP) — The Associated Press’ top editor on Sunday called for an independent investigation into the Israeli airstrike that targeted and destroyed a Gaza City building housing the AP, broadcaster Al-Jazeera and other media, saying the public deserves to know the facts. Sally Buzbee, AP’s executive editor, said the Israeli government has yet to provide clear evidence supporting its attack, which leveled the 12-story al-Jalaa tower. The Israeli military, which gave AP journalists and other tenants about an hour to evacuate, claimed Hamas used the building for a military intelligence office and weapons development. Israeli military spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said Israel was compiling evidence for the U.S. but declined to commit to providing it within the next two days. “We’re in the middle of fighting,” Conricus said Sunday. “That’s in process and I’m sure in due time that information will be presented.” Buzbee said the AP has had offices in al-Jalaa tower for 15 years and never was informed or had any indication that Hamas might be in the building. She said the facts must be laid out. “We are in a conflict situation,” Buzbee said. “We do not take sides in that conflict. We heard Israelis say they have evidence; we don’t know what that evidence is.” “We think it’s appropriate at this point for there to be an independent look at what happened yesterday — an independent investigation," she added. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday repeated Israel’s claim that the building housed an intelligence office of Hamas. Asked if he had relayed supporting evidence of that in a call with President Joe Biden on Saturday, Netanyahu said “we pass it through our intelligence people.” Buzbee said the AP journalists were “rattled” after the airstrike but are doing fine and reporting the news. She expressed concern about the impact on news coverage. “This does impact the world’s right to know what is happening on both sides of the conflict in real time,” she said. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke by phone Saturday with AP’s president and CEO, Gary Pruitt. The State Department said Blinken offered “his unwavering support for independent journalists and media organizations around the world and noted the indispensability of their reporting in conflict zones." Buzbee and Conricus spoke on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” and Netanyahu was on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” Hope Yen, The Associated Press
WEST BROMWICH, England (AP) — Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker scored a dramatic goal in the fifth minute of stoppage time to earn a 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion on Sunday and keep alive his team's realistic chances of qualifying for the Champions League. Alisson came up for a corner in the Premier League game and glanced home a header from Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross before getting mobbed by teammates. Mohamed Salah’s 33rd-minute goal for Liverpool had canceled out the opener by Hal Robson-Kanu in the 15th. Liverpool is in fifth place on 63 points, with games remaining against Burnley and Crystal Palace. Fourth-place Chelsea has 64 points and third-place Leicester has 66, and both also have two games left. Leicester and Chelsea meet on Tuesday so one of them, if not both, will drop points. Chelsea finishes the season away to Aston Villa and Leicester hosts Tottenham. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports The Associated Press

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli medics say dozens of people have been injured in a bleacher collapse in a West Bank synagogue. Television footage from the scene showed the building was incomplete, with exposed concrete and boards visible. Amateur footage showed the collapse occurring during prayers Sunday evening in Givat Zeev, just outside Jerusalem, at the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. The ultra-Orthodox synagogue was packed with hundreds of people. The Magen David Adom rescue service said some 60 people were injured, including 10 in serious or critical condition. The Israeli military said in a statement that it dispatched medics and other search and rescue troops to assist at the scene. Army helicopters were airlifting the injured. The mayor of Givat Zeev said the building was improvised and dangerous, and that the police ignored calls to take action. The accident comes weeks after a stampede at a religious festival in northern Israel that killed 45 ultra-Orthodox Jews. The stampede triggered renewed criticism over the broad autonomy granted to the country’s politically powerful ultra-Orthodox minority. Last year, many ultra-Orthodox communities flouted coronavirus safety restrictions, contributing to high outbreak rates in their communities and angering the broader secular public.
