UN condemns killing of Al-Jazeera journalist in West Bank Updated: 2022-05-12 05:43:27 KST

The United Nations have swiftly condemned the killing of a journalist in the occupied West Bank.
This follows a raid conducted by the Israeli military on Wednesday, an Al Jazeera reporter was shot dead in the city of Jenin.
According to reports, 51-year-old Shireen Abu Akleh, was wearing a press vest clearly marking her as a journalist, but was shot anyway.
The U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, called her death horrifying, and stressed the need for a clear investigation.
That sentiment was echoed by the White House.
Abu Akleh was reporting on the ongoing slew of arrests by the Israeli military in a bid to stop deadly Arab attacks in Israel.
The killing of the reporter has enflamed tensions in the conflict, with Palestinians and a local news channel accusing Israel of killing her.
However, Israel's leader claims she was likely hit by indiscriminate shooting from Palestinians.
