In statements to reporters, Samoudi, who was wounded during the same Israeli raid, affirmed that the soldiers knew where the journalists were grouped, who were duly identified both on the bulletproof vests they were wearing and on their helmets.

The occupation forces attacked us directly, said Samoudi, who thus denied the Israeli military’s chief spokesman, Brig. Gen. Ran Kochav.

Shatha Hanaysha, who was also near Abu Akleh when she was hit by a bullet, also confirmed that they were targeted by Israeli soldiers, although they were well identified.

Not only the Palestinian Government, but also parties, human rights organizations and public officials criticized the incident and called for sanctions against Israel.

According to Wafa news agency, Tel Aviv forces committed 384 violations against journalists working in Palestinian areas in 2021.
