US actress Susan Sarandon is claiming that Israel “executed” an Al Jazeera journalist who was shot dead amid clashes between Palestinian gunmen and Israeli troops during a raid in Jenin.

“Shireen Abu Akleh was EXECUTED with a shot to the head by Israeli snipers while wearing her helmet & bullet proof vest that said PRESS on in,” she writes on Twitter. “How long will we continue remaining silent while our ‘allies’ kill journalists for telling inconvenient truths?”

The Palestinians have blamed Israel for Abu Akleh’s death, while Israeli officials say Palestinian gunmen may have fired the fatal shot.
