Abu Akleh family fumes over US findings failing to fully blame Israel

In a statement, the family of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh pronounce themselves “incredulous” and harshly criticize the US investigation into her death for concluding that while an Israeli soldier likely shot her, there is no evidence it was intentional.

“There were numerous eyewitnesses to the killing, and we have now had the benefit of reports from multiple local and international media outlets, human rights organizations, and the United Nations, that an Israeli soldier fired the fatal shot,” the Abu Akleh family says.

They call the journalist’s death “an extrajudicial killing.”
