Badly damaged – Abu Akleh files

by on July 6, 2022

The U.S. Security Coordinator investigation over the murder of AlJazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh, who is U.S. dual citizen, concluded the bullet that killed her, fired by an Israeli solider, was “badly damaged,” and this prevented a clear proof of the origin of the bullet.

Even CNN – and NYT, citing CNN – acknowledged that a bullet fired by an Israeli soldier killed Abu Akleh, and that it was done intentionally. Israeli analysts with former roles in the government agree, and said the order to kill a journalist (who was reporting on Israeli “military incursions”) came from high levels in the government.

Accountability is cool, but we already know who did it and who ordered it.

Ordering the murder of a journalist, especially while they are doing their job, is a war crime.

This is not complicated.
