Today we DeepDive into Israel’s targeting of Palestinian journalists.
This morning, veteran Palestinian journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, was shot dead by Israeli forces while reporting for Al Jazeera from a Palestinian refugee camp in Jenin, occupied West Bank.
Eye witnesses say Israeli snipers shot at her and a colleague, Ali al-Samoudi, who was also wounded by a bullet in the back, despite them both wearing press vests and helmets. According to the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), at least 46 Palestinian journalists have been killed by Israel since the year 2000 and no one has been held to account.
