IDF says it will continue to probe Abu Akleh slaying

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

Responding to an inconclusive ballistics test of the bullet that killed Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh, the Israel Defense Forces says it will continue to investigate the incident.

The IDF says Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi has instructed the military to continue to investigate “using all means at our disposal and with a commitment to transparency and seeking the truth.”

A decision on whether to open a criminal probe will be made after the completion of the investigation, the military adds.
