Leo Dee, who lost his wife and two of his daughters in a terror attack, has announced that he will sue CNN for comments claiming they were "killed in a shootout."

Speaking to i24NEWS, Dee said, "The fact that they said they were killed, and not brutally murdered by evil Palestinian terrorists funded by Iran is the typical CNN-ism, where they basically try like this comparison between the victim and the terrorist."

"Christiane Amanpour wrote me a brief email apologizing for any misunderstanding that might've been caused by the fact that she called it 'killing by a shootout,'" he added. "Of course, it's not worth the paper it's printed on, because when you make a statement in front of a hundred million people on prime time television and then you apologize in an email to a single person, it has one one-hundred-millionth of the impact."

Dee also told i24NEWS about his "interesting" conversation with the head of CNN's Jerusalem bureau, noting that, "It did make me wonder the level of humanity."

As of this writing, CNN had not yet replied to i24NEWS' request for comment.

Leo Dee's wife Lucy Dee and daughters Rina and Maia were murdered last month when terrorists opened fire at their car in the Jordan Valley.

In her comments, CNN host Christiane Amanpour claimed, "The mother and two Israel-British sisters – they were killed in a shootout," seemingly implying that the victims of terror were also shooting.

In her email apologizing to Dee, Amanpour also expressed her condolences, saying that there "was no intention" on her part.

Dee responded with a long email saying that he does not accept her apology, since she spread false information to millions of people, and demanded that she issue a public apology.

Amanpour later apologized publicly, saying, "On April 10, I referred to the murders of an Israeli family: Lucy, Maia and Rina Dee, the wife and daughters of Rabbi Leo Dee. I misspoke and said they were killed in a ‘shootout’ instead of a shooting. I have written to Rabbi Leo Dee to apologize and make sure that he knows that we apologize for any further pain that may have caused him."
