Israel did not prosecute anyone for killing 20 journalists

In the report prepared by CPJ in the first year of Abu Akile’s murder, the legal processes regarding journalists who were killed in Israel since 2001, most of them while on duty, were evaluated.

In the report, it was pointed out that Israel carried out an “untransparent, cursory and timely” investigation into the murdered journalists, and included the following statements:

“No one has been investigated for the murder of 20 journalists since 2001. Legal processes have been carried out in a way that acquits the law enforcement officers responsible for the incidents, without considering evidence and witness claims. Israeli authorities are avoiding accountability by prolonging the legal processes regarding the murder of journalists, and the Palestinians seek justice. blocking.”

Reminding that Israeli warplanes hit the high-rise building in Gaza in 2021, where the offices of the US-based news agency Associated Press (AP) and Qatar-based television channel Al Jazeera are located, the report condemned the destruction of the media infrastructure by Israel.

They were clearly seen as members of the press at the time of their murder.

Noting that 13 of the 20 journalists in question were clearly members of the press at the time of their murder, the report states that Palestinian journalists Yasir Murteca and Ahmed Abu Hussein, who were killed by Israeli soldiers’ fire while following the “Great March of Return” protests held on the Gaza Strip border, in 2018. A call was made to launch an “independent and transparent” investigation into the death of Abu Akile.

The report also requested the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to share information about the progress of the investigation into Abu Akile’s death.

Murder of Shirin Abu Akile

Abu Akile, a 51-year-old veteran field reporter for Al Jazeera television, was killed by Israeli soldiers’ fire on May 11, 2022, while he was following the Israeli forces’ raid on a refugee camp in the West Bank city of Jenin.

Journalist Ali es-Sumudi, who was with Abu Akile, was also injured in the back.

The murder of journalist Abu Akile, while he was doing his duty and while wearing a steel vest with the inscription “press”, was shot dead by Israeli soldiers with live bullets.

The conclusions reached by the investigations and investigations of many international institutions revealed that Abu Akile was targeted and killed by Israeli soldiers.

The Israeli army, which repeatedly denied its responsibility for the incident and held the Palestinian armed groups responsible, announced in its final report published on September 5, 2022, after international reactions, that Abu Akile was “highly likely to have been accidentally killed by the fire of the Israeli army”.

The FBI announced that an investigation was launched into the murder of US citizen Abu Akile in November last year.
