US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield joins the chorus of officials condemning the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh during an IDF raid in Jenin this morning.

“I send my deepest condolences to her family,” she tweets, noting that she met her during her visit to the West Bank last year.

“We must ensure journalists performing critical work amidst conflict are protected, and we call for an immediate and thorough investigation into this tragedy,” Thomas-Greenfield adds.
