Israeli Report Admits to ‘High Possibility’ that its Military Killed Shireen Abu Akleh

The Israeli occupation army released a statement Monday, admitting that there is a “high possibility” that an “unidentified” Israeli soldier killed Palestinian-American Al Jazeera Journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.


"It appears that it is not possible to unequivocally determine the source of the gunfire that hit and killed Ms. Abu Akleh," the Israeli occupation forces said in a statement.


The latter also added that no charges will be pressed against the soldier who killed Abu Akleh, “the Military Advocate General determined that under the circumstances of the incident, despite the dire result..there was no suspicion of a criminal offense that warrants the opening of an MPCID investigation.”


The statement also kept stressing that “there is a high possibility that Ms. Abu Akleh was accidentally hit by IDF gunfire fired toward suspects identified as armed Palestinian gunmen during an exchange of fire.”


Abu Akleh’s family responded by saying that "[o]ur family is not surprised by this outcome since it’s obvious to anyone that Israeli war criminals cannot investigate their own crimes. However, we remain deeply hurt, frustrated, and disappointed. "


Al Jazeera Media Network released a statement denouncing the Israeli report on Monday and pointed out that "this elusive admission is nothing but an attempt by the IOF to evade criminal responsibility for the killing of Shireen, which has been proven by numerous independent and international investigations."


The network also called for an investigation to be conducted by an independent international body. Al Jazeera has previously referred Abu Akleh’s case to the International Criminal Court.


The US Department of State welcomed the Israeli investigation in a press release. 


"We welcome Israel’s review of this tragic incident, and again underscore the importance of accountability in this case, such as policies and procedures to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future," the press release reads.


Shireen Abu Akleh was killed by the Israeli Occupation Forces on May 11, 2022 during a raid on Jenin in the West Bank, Palestine. The latter was clearly wearing a press suit with a big "PRESS" sign.
