ALGIERS – The United Nations said, Friday, that its findings showed that Al Jazeera-TV Palestinian journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, was killed Zionist forces’ fire.

The journalist, who was wearing a bulletproof vest marked “Press” and a helmet, was killed on May 11 while covering the Zionists’ invasion in Jenin refugee camp in the northern West Bank.

“We find that the shots that killed Abu Akleh came from ‘Israeli’ security forces,” UN Human Rights Office spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani told reporters in Geneva. “It is deeply disturbing that ‘Israeli’ authorities have not conducted a criminal investigation.”

“We at the UN Human Rights Office have concluded our independent monitoring into the incident,” Shamdasani said. “The shots that killed Abu Akleh and injured her colleague Ali Sammoudi came from Israeli security forces and not from indiscriminate firing by armed Palestinians, as initially claimed by Israeli authorities,” she added.

The findings showed that seven journalists arrived at the western entrance of the Jenin refugee camp soon after 6 a.m. At around 6:30 a.m., as four of the journalists turned into a particular street, “several single, seemingly well-aimed bullets were fired towards them from the direction of the “Israeli” security forces,” the UN stated on Friday.

“One single bullet injured Ali Sammoudi in the shoulder; another single bullet hit Abu Akleh in the head and killed her instantly,” Shamdasani stated.

Shireen Abu Aqleh was assassinated, on May 11, 2022, by Zionist occupation army fire while she was covering Zionist incursions in the Jenin area of ​​the occupied West Bank. She was wearing a bulletproof vest marked “Press” when she was killed.
