Church in Jerusalem calls killing of Palestinian journalist a blatant tragedy

Shireen Abu Akleh was a Palestinian-American journalist for Al Jazeera. On the morning of May 11, 2022, while covering the Israeli army’s storming of the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank, she was shot in the head despite wearing a vest marked “press.” Another journalist was wounded in the operation but managed to get to safety away from the military fire. The Patriarchate of Jerusalem strongly condemned the attack, calling it a “blatant tragedy” that ” brings back to human conscience the need to find a just solution to the Palestinian conflict, which refuses to enter oblivion.” According to the Associated Press, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz promised a transparent investigation and said he was in contact with American and Palestinian officials. The U.S. ambassador to Israel, Tom Nides, also reacted by tweeting that he was “very sad” to learn of the journalist’s killing and that he too was calling for “a thorough investigation into the circumstances.”
