Tehran-based foreign journalists condemn Israel’s murder of Abu Akleh

Tehran-based foreign journalists condemn Israel’s murder of Abu Akleh
Shireen Abu Akleh, who for more than two decades was at the forefront of coverage of the Israeli apartheid regime’s war crimes against Palestinians, was murdered on May 11, 2022, in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin.

Foreign media journalists based in the Iranian capital of Tehran condemned the Israeli forces’ “heinous and inexcusable” murder of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.

In a statement, they said in response to the heinous and inexcusable murder of their veteran colleague Abu Akleh by the Zionist occupiers while covering developments in Jenin Camp in northern West Bank, “We abhor this crime and strongly condemn” Israel’s attack on free speech.

They also expressed their condolences to the martyr’s family, their colleagues at Al Jazeera, and “all freedom-seeking voices in the world who want to reflect the truth”.

The statement added that she was a brilliant journalist and one of the most prominent media personalities in Palestine whose coverage sought to show the world a glimpse of Palestinian oppression and the Zionist occupying forces’ cruelty and stayed on this path until martyrdom.

The Tehran-based foreign journalists said the heinous crime once again reveals the terrorist nature of the occupying regime, as evidence and witnesses show that the occupying forces targeted her deliberately despite the fact that she had adhered to all professional and security codes for journalists in conflict zones.

“This cowardly crime once again shows a deliberate attempt by the Zionist regime to intimidate journalists into not reflecting the truth and not disclosing the regime’s violations of human rights in Palestinian lands – a crime that is a new instance of the murder of Palestinian civilians and a clear violation of human rights and international law by the Zionist regime.”

They said foreign media journalists based in Tehran call on international and legal organizations to condemn this crime and to legally prosecute its perpetrators by conducting an independent criminal investigation in order to put an end to decades of Zionist atrocities.
