JERUSALEM :
 
A JOURNALIST for Al-Jazeera was shot and killed while covering an Israeli raid in the occupied West Bank town of Jenin early on Wednesday, the Palestinian Health Ministry said. It said Shireen Abu Akleh, a well-known Palestinian female reporter for the broadcaster’s Arabic language channel, was shot and died soon afterward. Another Palestinian journalist working for the Jerusalem-based Al-Quds newspaper was wounded but in stable condition.
 
The Health Ministry said the reporters were hit by Israeli fire. In video footage of the incident, Abu Akleh can be seen wearing a blue flak jacket clearly marked with the word “PRESS.” Al-Jazeera blamed Israel for the death of its reporter. The Qatar-based broadcaster flashed a statement on its channel saying: “We call on the international community to condemn and hold the Israeli occupation forces accountable for deliberately targeting and killing our colleague Shireen Abu Akleh.”
