Family members of Shireen Abu Akleh reject the findings of an IDF probe into the killing of the the Palestinian-American journalist.

The Israeli probe found that it was likely but not definitive that an Israeli soldier accidentally shot Abu Akleh in May during an IDF raid in Jenin.

In a statement, her family calls the IDF investigation an “attempt to obscure the truth and avoid responsibility” for her death.

The family calls for independent investigations by the United States and the International Criminal Court.

“Israel’s killing of our dear Shireen cannot be swept aside,” the family says, adding that they “will not stop until we have justice.”
