Summary

Reporter, HuffPostThe White House spoke out against the killing earlier Wednesday of veteran Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, who was covering an Isreali military raid in the occupied West Bank when she was shot in the head and her colleague was wounded.The Qatar-based network and the wounded producer in the incident, Ali Samoudi, both say that Israeli forces were behind the murder of 51-year-old Abu Akleh, a Palestinian and U.S. citizen who has covered the Israeli occupation for decades before she was killed on the outskirts of the Jenin refugee camp while wearing protective gear that identified her as press.“We are heartbroken by and strongly condemn the killing of American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh in the West Bank,” State Department spokesman Ned Price tweeted. The Palestinian Authority reportedly refused a joint probe, calling Abu Akleh’s death a “shocking crime” committed by Israeli forces.Al Jazeera, which has long had strained relations with Israel for reporting on its military occupation of Palestinians, called on the international community to “condemn and hold the Israeli occupation forces accountable for deliberately targeting and killing our colleague.“We pledge to prosecute the perpetrators legally, no matter how hard they try to cover up their crime, and bring them to justice,” the outlet said.
