"The occupation of Palestine has lasted more than 74 years" according to the PA

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, on an activity in Egypt in memory of Al-Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh – see note below



Official PA TV reporter: “Even though the occupation has already lasted more than 74 years (i.e., since the establishment of Israel in 1948) it still fears the Martyrs and takes aggressive action against their coffins, and fears the waving of the Palestinian flag and the Palestinian’s loyalty to his homeland.”





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.
