The Israeli military report said its soldiers may have ‘accidentally’ killed journalist Al Jazeera.
An Israeli military investigation has found it is “highly likely” that an Israeli soldier “accidentally” shot and killed Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh in May.
However, there will be no criminal investigation.
Al Jazeera has accused the Israeli military of trying to evade criminal responsibility for killing its journalist.
The network, Palestinian officials and Shireen’s family are all demanding an international and independent investigation.
Israel has repeatedly changed its theory about the circumstances of Abu Akleh’s death since the shootings.
How can this case move forward?
