The IDF released the results of an investigation into the death of American-Palestinian journalist Shirin Abu-Akle, which claims that it is highly likely that she was unintentionally shot dead by Israeli soldiers, but there is also another version.

A report regarding the death of a correspondent for the Qatari TV channel Al Jazeera published on September 5, Monday.

“After the completion of a number of investigations carried out by a special task force, it turned out that it was impossible to accurately determine the source of the shooting, due to which Shirin Abu Akle was hit. However, there is a high possibility that Abu Akle was accidentally hit by IDF fire on suspects identified as armed Palestinian militants. This happened during a firefight during which IDF soldiers were massively and indiscriminately fired at the risk of their lives,” it says.

As a result of the investigation, it is said that the soldiers started shooting to neutralize the terrorists who were firing at the military from different points. Among the latter was the area where Abu Akle was located. However, this is not the only version – there is a possibility that the journalist was shot dead by armed Palestinian militants.
