Sherine Abu Aqla Cause Of Death, Obituary Not Yet Available – Sherine Abu Aqla, 51, was shot “deliberately” and “in cold blood” by Israeli troops, according to the Qatar-based network. Her producer was shot and injured as well. They were “presumably” shot by Palestinian gunmen during an exchange of fire, according to Israel’s prime minister. It comes in the midst of an uptick in violence between Israel and Palestinians.
Sherine Abu Aqla was shot in the head by a live bullet while covering the operation, according to the Palestinian health ministry. She was sent to the hospital in severe condition and subsequently died.
According to the health ministry, another Palestinian journalist, Al Jazeera producer Ali Samoudi, was shot in the back and was in stable condition in hospital.
Mr Samoudi was quoted by Al Jazeera as saying, “We were heading to film the Israeli army operation when they shot us without asking us to leave or stop shooting.” “The first bullet struck me, while the second struck Sherine. “At the scene, there was no Palestinian military resistance at all,” he claimed.
Sherine’s body was carried through Jenin’s streets draped in a Palestinian flag and wearing her press flak jacket. The procession was surrounded by reporters and photographers who were covering the death of one of their own.
Sherine was a well-liked reporter, one of the most experienced in the region, and a recognizable face at the region’s numerous major news events. A generation of Palestinians grew up watching her on television as one of the most well-known female conflict reporters.
There is astonishment and incredulity among a close-knit journalist corps. One of her coworkers shared what he claimed was the last photo of her with them, showing her putting on her flak jacket five minutes before she died. Another person remarked of Sherine: “During her reporting, she witnessed numerous deaths. You showed us how to perform this hazardous task. You’ve just shattered our hearts.”
“She was a household [name] in Palestine, the region, and the rest of the globe for being who she was – a distinguished journalist who devoted her life covering news, including Israeli atrocities in Palestine.”
The Israeli military conducts arrest raids in the Jenin refugee camp on a regular basis. They have lately increased their efforts in response to a surge of attacks by Israeli Arabs and Palestinians on Israeli and West Bank streets in recent weeks, which resulted in the deaths of 17 Israelis and two Ukrainians.
At least 26 Palestinians have been slain, including assailants killed while carrying out assaults and militants and bystanders killed during Israeli raids and clashes in the West Bank. Four of the Palestinians who carried out assaults in Israel hailed from the Jenin neighborhood, which has been the focus of Israeli operations.
