Israel will not investigate the killing of Al Jazeera journalist Shirin

The Israeli military has not yet taken any action to investigate the killing of journalist Shirin Abu Akleh. Al Jazeera reported this information in a report.

An Israeli newspaper reported on Thursday, citing the country’s police criminal investigation department, that the investigation into Shirin’s murder would treat Israeli soldiers as suspects and create divisions among Israelis.

Last week, 51-year-old journalist Shirin Abu Akleh was shot dead by Israeli soldiers. Initially, Israel denied any involvement in the shootings. Later, the country’s prime minister quickly promised an investigation.

But a week later, the country’s military did not investigate Shirin’s death.

Shirin’s family was not surprised when the Israeli army did not launch an investigation into his death.

“This is exactly what we expected from Israel,” his family said in a statement. That is why they did not want to participate in the investigation process. I want justice for the army involved in this incident.

“We specifically demand the United States – because he (Shirin) is a US citizen. The international community will conduct an accurate and fair investigation. And it will stop such killings. “

Although a U.S. citizen, Shirin lived in East Jerusalem. He worked as an Al Jazeera correspondent in the West Bank and Gaza for more than three decades before his death. Shirin was shot dead by an Israeli soldier as he was about to report an operation by the last occupying Israeli army.
