Al-Jazeera described the killing of Shirin as a premeditated Israeli crime.

A statement by Al Jazeera Media Network said that its correspondent in the occupied West Bank, Shireen Abu Aqleh, was shot dead by the Israeli army, but Israeli sources say that the reporter was killed as a result of indiscriminate shooting by Palestinian gunmen in Jenin camp.

Shireen died of serious injuries sustained in the head area while covering the Israeli forces’ storming of Jenin camp on Wednesday morning, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.

The ministry said, in a statement, that Shireen “martyred as a result of being shot by the Israeli army in the city of Jenin,” while the Palestinian Public Prosecution has launched an investigation into the crime.

Al-Jazeera network said that the Israeli soldiers targeted its correspondent “directly”. It quoted eyewitnesses as saying that “a sniper targeted Shireen with a bullet in the face, even though she was wearing a jacket and helmet bearing the logo of the press,” and that the Israeli soldiers “fired live bullets at the demonstrators and press crews.”
