Veteran journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was shot and killed while reporting for Al Jazeera on an Israeli army raid in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, the broadcaster reported on Wednesday. Al Jazeera Says Israeli Force Killed Abu Akleh; the Israeli army says it believes it was hit by Palestinian fire.

Abu Akleh, a 51-year-old US citizen, was covering a military raid on Jenin refugee camp ‘when she was hit in the face by a single bullet while wearing a press vest’, Al Jazeera said. . He said the TV correspondent was “murdered in cold blood” after being targeted by Israeli forces.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett issued a statement saying, “Based on the information we have gathered, it seems likely that armed Palestinians – who were firing indiscriminately at the time – were responsible for the journalist’s unfortunate death.”
