(ANSA) – ROME, JULY 04 – Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was probably hit by Israeli positions but there is no reason to believe that her killing was intentional: the US State Department states, explaining of not being able to reach a “definitive conclusion” on the origin of the bullet that hit her on 11 May and which was delivered to Washington by the Palestinian Authority.

“The army investigation has made it clear that it cannot be established who is responsible for the painful death of the reporter,” said interim premier Yair Lapid, adding: “but it certainly can be established that there was no intention of hitting her.” . “Israel – she added – expresses regret for her death. Israel is interested in defending journalists and freedom of the press everywhere and in all conditions”.

“Unacceptable”. Thus the Palestinian Attorney General Akram al-Khatib defined the conclusions of the investigation. “We are surprised – he said, quoted by Wafa – by these statements.

The technical data in our possession indicates that the conditions of the bullet are valid for the combination with the firearm “, which fired.

“We are incredulous”: this is how the reporter’s family commented on the results of the investigation. In an open letter they state that “Shireen was murdered” and claim that numerous testimonies confirm that “the fatal shot was fired by an Israeli soldier”. They complain that the investigation was not “transparent”, and its outcome, they write, “is an insult to his memory.” “We will continue to seek justice. We will appeal to the UN and the International Criminal Court to take immediate action. The story – they assure – does not end like this “(ANSA).
