Palestine: Al Jazeera journalist killed by Israeli forces in West Bank

By Qais Abu Samra

 

JENIN, Palestine (AA): An Al Jazeera journalist was killed by Israeli army fire in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

A ministry statement said Shireen Abu Aqleh, 51, was shot in the head while covering Israeli raids in the city of Jenin.

Another journalist, Ali Al-Samoudi, who works for the Jerusalem-based Quds newspaper was shot in the back, the ministry said.

Earlier Wednesday, Israeli forces raided the city of Jenin to arrest a Palestinian, triggering clashes with angry residents.

The Israeli army said in a statement that it was “investigating the incident.”

A military statement said army forces, in cooperation with the Shin Bet internal security service and the border guards, worked “in the last hours in the Jenin refugee camp and near the village of Burqin, and in several other areas of the West Bank to arrest wanted persons.”

The army suggested that the Al Jazeera correspondent may have been shot by Palestinians as they clashed with Israeli forces, which “responded with fire, without causing any casualties.”

Al Jazeera’s bureau chief in Ramallah, Walid al-Omary, said that there had been no shooting carried out by Palestinian gunmen, disputing an Israeli statement that referenced the possibility.
