Israeli forces shot and killed, on Wednesday, a correspondent with Al-Jazeera, near the Jenin refugee camp west of Jenin, in addition to shooting and injuring another journalist, according to local sources.

The slain Jerusalemite journalist, identified as Sherine Abu Aqleh, was shot by occupation forces while she and others were covering the army invasion of the Al-Jabriyat neighborhood of Jenin, in the northern West Bank.

Despite wearing a clearly marked “PRESS” vest, soldiers targeted the female reporter, shooting her in the head with live ammunition, killing her instantly, as seen in the video.

Locals on the scene transported the critically injured woman to Ibn Sina Hospital in Jenin, where the medical team pronounced her deceased from the life-threatening wounds inflicted by the Israeli army.

““In a blatant murder, violating international laws and norms, the Israeli occupation forces assassinated in cold blood Al Jazeera’s correspondent in Palestine, Shireen Abu Akleh, targeting her with live fire early this morning, while conducting her journalistic duty, clearly wearing a press jacket that identifies her a journalist, covering the Israeli occupation forces storming of Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank,”


Al-Jazeerz added;

“The Israeli authorities are also responsible for the targeting of Al Jazeera producer Ali al-Samudi, who was also shot in the back while covering the same event, and he is currently undergoing treatment.”

Shatha Hanaisheh, one of the journalists at the scene nearest to Abu Aqleh when she was shot, described what she witnessed;

“We were sheltering with a wall, and we all wore a protective shield and helmets on our heads, so that the occupation army that was surrounding a house could distinguish us, and there were no confrontations at all.”

She added that she heard the sound of gunfire, “and it turned out that a bullet had hit fellow journalist Ali Smoudi, and he fell on the ground, so Shireen started calling for him, and suddenly she fell on her face without moving.”
