Israeli Army “apologies” for killing Sherin Abu Akle

A year after the killing of Al-Jazeera reporter Sherin Abu Aqle, the Israeli military has apologized for shooting him in the head during events in the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank.

Network explainedCNNUS news reports said it was the first time the Israeli military had apologized for the killing of a Palestinian-American reporter, saying it was “highly likely” she was shot dead by an Israeli soldier.

The IDF spokesman, Admiral Daniel Hagari, apologized in an interview during an interview on Eleni Giukos’ show “Connect the World” on CNN.

“I think this is an opportunity to say here that we are very sorry for the death of Sherin Abu Aghle,” Hagari said in his apology.

And he continued, “He (Sherin) is very well known, and in Israel we value our democracy, whereby we value the press, especially the independent press.”

He added, “We see great value in the press and independent press. We want journalists to be safe in Israel, especially in times of war, even if they criticize us.”

In November last year, Israel refused to submit its soldiers to the US Federal Bureau of Investigation investigation after a report that the FBI had opened an investigation into the killing of Sherin during an Israeli military operation in the West Bank in May. .
