Joint List MK Ahmad Tibi blames Israel for the death of Al Jazeera journalist Shirin Abu Akleh amid clashes between Palestinian gunmen and Israeli forces during an IDF raid, claiming Prime Minister Naftali Bennett knows who fired the fatal shot.

Israel has said it remains unclear who shot the bullet that killed Abu Akleh but has focused on two possible scenarios, one involving an officer who fired through a slit in a vehicle in response to Palestinian gunfire.

“You know what jeep he fired from,” Tibi says in the Knesset plenum.

In response, Bennett says, “You’re lying.”
