Shireen Abu Akleh: US forensic experts to analyse bullet that killed Al Jazeera journalist | World News
American forensic experts will analyze the bullet that killed an Al Jazeera journalist in May as the Palestinian Authority tries to settle a dispute with Israel over her death.
Shireen Abu Akleh, 51, is a veteran Palestinian-American reporter who has covered the Middle East conflict for more than 25 years.
She has shoot dead people despite being clearly identified as a member of the press while covering an Israeli military raid on a refugee camp in the occupied West Bank.
Her colleagues, who were with her at the time, and other Palestinians witnesssaid that she was killed by Israeli The Self-Defense Forces opened fire.
The Israeli military said she was caught in the crossfire of the fighting with Palestinian gunmen and called for the delivery of the bullet and analysis as evidence. Palestinians say they will not turn back because of distrust.
The Israeli prime minister’s office has released a video showing that a Palestinian may have been responsible – however a analysis by Forensic team and Sky News Data shows that the shooting in the video could not have justifiably hit Ms. Abu Akleh.
The Israeli police then caused international outrage when the video showed them Fire tear gas and try to arrest the unscrupulous at the journalist’s funeral in Jerusalem.
Some officers were filmed hitting the legs of the playboys, causing the coffins to slip and nearly fall to the ground.
Palestinian Justice Minister Akram al Khatib said the bullet was given to American experts “to do technical work” and said Palestine welcomes the participation of international bodies to “help us identify accept the truth”,
“We are confident and sure about our investigations and the results we have achieved,” he said.
However, the AP news agency said it is still unclear whether the analysis of the bullet without the rifle could produce any results.
US President Joe Biden is expected to visit the region in just over a week.
