The funeral of Shireen Abu Akleh

Friday, 17 June 2022 | The Qatar-based Al Jazeera network on Thursday showed what it said was the bullet that killed their West Bank [Judea and Samaria] reporter Shireen Abu Akleh, killed while covering an IDF [Israel Defense Forces] incursion into the Jenin refugee camp last month.

The 5.5-millimeter [0.19-in.] bullet, designed to pierce armor, is used in an M4 rifle, the network said, quoting military experts.

Israel was blamed by Al Jazeera for the reporter’s death despite IDF claims that Abu Akleh was shot in the head during an exchange of fire with Palestinian gunmen in the camp and could have been shot by their indiscriminate fire.

The military claimed there could be no definite determination of the source of fire that killed the reporter without a forensic examination of the bullet which the Palestinian Authority refused to provide to Israel despite calls for a joint probe.

In its latest report, Al Jazeera said the bullet was marked in green, indicating it was IDF-issued ammunition. However, the Palestinian gunmen use the same bullets, many of which were stolen from IDF bases.
