The Israeli army said Monday that if it turns out that an Israeli soldier was the one who recently killed Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akle, it was not “criminal activity.”
Sherine Abu Akleh, journalist at Al JazeeraHe was killed while covering an Israeli operation in the occupied West Bank on May 11. Al Jazeera The Israeli army holds the responsibility for the killing of Abu Okla and speaks of a “blatant murder”. On Monday, Yifat Tomer Yerushalmi, the Israel Defense Forces’ attorney general, said criminal activity could not be presumed due to a lack of evidence.
“It is doing its best to investigate the circumstances of the accident and determine how his mind was killed,” the military said. The attorney general said whether there would be a criminal investigation would depend on whether the evidence was available. Israel also criticized on Monday that Palestine wants to save the fatal bullet and therefore cannot examine the evidence itself.
Last week, the Attorney General said that during clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinian gunmen, a soldier fired several bullets from a military vehicle at a Palestinian who targeted the vehicle.
A Palestinian gunman fired several shots at the Israeli soldier. “It is possible that Mrs. Abu Akleh, who was close to the Palestinian gunman, was shot by the soldier,” Tomer Yerushalmi said.
