Written by awawa on May 11, 2022
Al Jazeera journalist Shereen Abu Aqleh has been shot dead while reporting on a raid by Israeli security forces in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin.
The Qatar-based news channel said Abu Aqleh, 51, was shot “deliberately” and “in cold blood” by Israeli troops. Another reporter was shot and wounded.
The Israeli military denied that its forces targeted journalists.
It was looking into “the possibility” that they “were hit by Palestinian gunmen” during an exchange of fire.
Israel’s Foreign Minister Yair Lapid described Abu Aqleh’s death as “sad” and said it had offered to carry out a joint investigation with the Palestinian Authority.
