The United Nations, US, UK and EU, on Wednesday called for a thorough investigation into the death of veteran Al-Jazeera journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, during an Israeli raid in the occupied West Bank, Anadolu News Agency reports.
Abu Akleh, 51, was shot dead while covering an Israeli raid in the city of Jenin. Another journalist, Ali Al-Samoudi, was shot in the back, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
"I strongly condemn the killing of Al-Jazeera's reporter, Shireen Abu Akleh, who was shot with live fire this morning while covering an Israeli security forces' operation in Jenin, in occupied West Bank," UN Special Envoy for Middle East Peace Process, Tor Wennesland, said on Twitter.
"I call for an immediate and thorough investigation and for those responsible to be held accountable. Media workers should never be targeted," he added.
