Washington called, on Tuesday, to open a “comprehensive and transparent” investigation into the killing of Al-Jazeera correspondent Shireen Abu Aqleh, who was recently martyred by the Israeli occupation.
The US State Department spokesman, Ned Price, said in a press briefing that Washington “wants a comprehensive and transparent investigation into the killing of Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.”
He pointed out that the US administration “does not believe that the International Criminal Court is the appropriate place” to investigate the assassination of Abu Aqila.
In this context, Price pointed out that Washington called on “the Palestinians and the Israelis to cooperate in the investigation of the murder of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.
Yesterday, the Palestinian Foreign Ministry announced that it had written to the International Criminal Court, regarding the “execution” of journalist Sherine Abu Aqleh and Israel’s “crimes” against the Palestinian people.
On May 11, Abu Aqila, 51, was martyred after being shot by the Israeli army during an operation in the city of Jenin in the northern West Bank, according to the Palestinian Authority.
At the time, Adviser to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ahmed Al-Deek, said, in an interview with Anadolu Agency, that Palestine will follow up the “assassination” file of Abu Aqila “with the International Criminal Court, and at the level of national courts in countries.”
In turn, the United States condemned the killing of Shireen Abu Aqleh, but stressed that it was not a “party” to any investigations, calling on the Palestinian and Israeli sides to cooperate in this regard.
