A joint investigation by a London-based multidisciplinary research group and a Palestinian rights group has uncovered further evidence that prove the killing of Al Jazeera journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, was ‘deliberate’, and shows Israeli reports were ‘false, and misleading’.
The investigation analysed and synchronised all available footage of the incident, some previously unseen, in order to construct a precise timeline of the incident. They then used advanced spatial technologies to definitively demonstrate the origin of the shots fired and the clear intent behind them.
These revelations follow the submission of an official complaint to the International Criminal Court (ICC) by Shireen’s family to demand justice for her death.
A diplomatic tussle has begun after Chile’s president postponed accepting the credentials of Israel’s new ambassador to Santiago over the killing in the occupied West Bank of a Palestinian teenager that same day.
“That’s because today is a sensitive day because of the death of a minor,” a spokesperson from Chile’s ministry of foreign affairs said in a text message, referring to the death of a 17-year-old Palestinian boy that day, and the 149th Palestinian killed by Israel this year.
In what is being called one of the greatest archaeological treasures ever found in Gaza, a Palestinian farmer has discovered a pristine Byzantine-era mosaic dating back centuries.
“These are the most beautiful mosaic floors discovered in Gaza, both in terms of the quality of the graphic representation and the complexity of the geometry. Never have mosaic floors of this finesse, this precision in the graphics and richness of the colours been discovered in the Gaza Strip.”
