Al-Jazeera TV (Arabic)  |

Video posted on the Al-Jazeera YouTube channel on the death of Al-Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh, who was killed during a gunfight initiated by Palestinian terrorists attacking Israeli forces in Jenin on May 11, 2022

Journalist: “Is there clear evidence that the bullet [that killed Shireen Abu Akleh] came from the Israeli army, thereby debunking the Israeli version?” Head of An-Najah National University’s Forensic Medicine Dep. Dr. Rayyan Al-Ali: “It is currently impossible to declare any information because the partners from the forensic laboratory, each in their own field of expertise, will study the evidence that will be gathered.”

Shireen Abu Akleh - 51-year-old Palestinian-American journalist for Al-Jazeera who was shot and killed while covering a gunbattle initiated by Palestinian terrorists who attacked Israeli forces during an operation in Jenin on May 11, 2022. The PA immediately accused Israel of shooting Abu Akleh without providing evidence. Israel rejected the accusation, noting Palestinian terrorists were filmed shooting indiscriminately and saying they had hit an Israeli soldier even though no soldiers were wounded, possibly indicating they had shot Abu Akleh. The PA rejected Israel's request to conduct a joint investigation of the incident, and its request to let it examine the bullet that killed Abu Akleh to determine whether it was fired by Israeli forces. The bullet is of a type used by both Israeli soldiers and Palestinian terrorists. In a press conference following Abu Akleh's autopsy on the day of her death, Head of An-Najah National University’s Forensic Medicine Department Dr. Rayyan Al-Ali said it could not yet be determined which side shot her.
