Initial Forensics Can't Determine Who Killed Journalist in Jenin
Israeli and Palestinian initial findings on the death of Shireen Abu Akleh have been unable to determine who shot the veteran Al-Jazeera correspondent in Jenin during clashes between armed Palestinians and IDF troops in Jenin.
An initial autopsy of her body said that she died after a bullet that was fired several meters away struck her head. Dr. Ryan al-Ali of the Pathological Institute at the a-Najah University in Nablus was quoted by al-Jarmak TV channel as saying that they could not determine who had shot her.
The IDF launched an investigation into the death on Wednesday evening, May 11. Speaking to journalists on Wednesday night, Gantz said that Israel is “committed to finding out the truth” of the incident.
Expressing his sorrow and regret over her death, the defense minister said that it will take time to get a clear picture of her death and who is at fault. (JPost / VFI News)
