that i am human rights organizations for example, like bit st. limb and is really human rights. so can i say that decided a long time ago that they're no longer going to even into act with the complaint system with invisible eli army because it is not serious. it doesn't find israeli soldiers guilty, cut out his foreign ministry whose country hosts the al jazeera network, issued a statement with senior diplomats, no one caught demanding an end to what she called state sponsored israeli terrorism . the european union and other members of the international community have also condemned the kenning. but all these condemnations have fallen short of including any sanctioning or punishment for a crime that threatens the essence of any free society. a free press should in was kill, trying to inform the world of what was happening in her country. the world now

5:19 pm
okay, we'll continue that coverage of ramallah in just a moment, but in the meantime, let's head to outside sharina house where stephanie decker is standing by for us. steph, these rally police, were there earlier? explain what's, what's been happening. i. c yeah, let me just refer back to those images that we were just watching. i was watching on my phone really incredibly poignant. you. hi al jazeera bureau chief, what you don't already there are holly all the correspondence camera man engineers, was received, i believe, by a priest from what i could see there laughing. but you know, to think that she left this morning and janine pulling in, telling her colleagues, i'm going to go cover the raid and that her body has now been brought into that. i'm on the bureau on a stretcher draped from the palestinian flag. i could see a rush of flowers, a lot,
5:20 pm
a lot of people outside our office in that i'm on that pay response, but certainly incredibly emotional and unbelievable images watching her body arrive there. i have to say, coming back to here, we are outside the family home. you can hear some of the youth there was, you know, saying that they're not afraid of these really occupation of the army of the intelligence saw you asked me about holding hands that they're strong together. some is just translating for me. but you asked me about the police. we had 3 israeli police officers arrive here about 2 hours ago, entering the family home, which obviously caused a lot of controversy here. or they were followed by, you know, everyone here taking them to get out of the house, basically telling the family was receiving mourners and condolences to switch off the music. there were speakers that were, this has done, they have left now. and since then they've left completely, but certainly a move that you know at
5:21 pm
a time and the family is more should he wasn't my age doesn't have children, she has a brother. he's expected to arrive later today from africa. her sister in law is here in the house. her niece is also expected to arrive tomorrow. her body will be in the my lack of kata where present bass will be paying his respects to morrow. and then we expect the funeral to, to place here in bay 29 occupied east jerusalem on friday. but certainly i got no, you know, just seeing her body carried like that into the offices and watching our colleagues, the bureau chiefs stand around sobbing, incredulous it's, it's just, it's, it's impossible to believe. i think people, everyone, you're still in the shop that has actually happened. yes, steph, as well as i was going to say it must be so real to see our colleagues draped over her body. the emotion of all of that. i mean, what did she mean to that office,
5:22 pm
and what did she made to the great public i'll al jazeera elders are, are big in particular, is that, you know, pioneer really when it comes to how they covered use when they 1st moved to the arab world. and their correspondence, a household name in the middle east, whether you like al jazeera or not, people watch algebra, but here in the occupied territories, they are constantly on the story on the story. when the international media has long moved on al jazeera, because particular will always be covering whether it's home demolitions, whether it's forced evictions, whether it's being in gaza, whether it's being in the occupied westbank and talking about that expansion. whether it's to the continued removal of mind, whether it is i should in was doing this morning, the continued raid abuse radio army carries out in the occupied west. by this morning there was an exchange of fire between israeli army and palestinian gunmen and she sent an email to the office around 6 o'clock the morning talking about
5:23 pm
a rate going on that they were getting ready to go and coverage. and again, as you've been saying all day, you know, these are household faces. she is extremely well loved by her colleagues. i didn't know her very well. but i remember her as always, having a sort of kind and calm demeanor to our when we did cross each other. but certainly my colleagues in my law need are correspondent and i have a site stream. the clue search is incredibly kind of hard work here. again, like there's been tensions here for weeks on end. people have been working non stop for weeks, hovering escalations back and forth. so she was due to go in holiday. one of my colleagues just told me so it is, it's still possible to be ready. i mean, those images just watching them coming in. i was watching the light the back of my phone watching, you know, the bureau chief wiley done. i could see like he asked
5:24 pm
a couple of our correspondents there. there's one crying, i can't imagine being there and actually seeing her being carried on as you know, on a stretcher draped in the policy. and i, you know, and she is no more. it is. it's, yeah, it's a, it's, it's a shock to all of us stare, we're going to try and cross to needed shortly. but in the meantime, i just wanted to, to get your thoughts as a journalist, given what's happened to sharina. do you think that this will deter journalists from doing their jobs in the region, or will it further add to their resolve to tell these stories? no, i don't think this is going to stop in doing their jobs. i think in fact, it strengthens people's desires that need to continue to the story. this is i have to say unfortunately, nothing really new when it comes to palestinian journalist they have been killed in the past. i've covered funerals in the past in gauze, in particular,
5:25 pm
palestinian journalists killed during the border protests and certainly there was not the international light on that as there is. now, of course al jazeera is a huge network cutter is an important player. this is also becoming somewhat of a diplomatic incident to have the entire world react. you've just heard from the u . s. embassy to the un, referred to as you've had countries, a bastard, or is to israel, the u. s. ambassador of the british ambassador, the un special envoy to the middle east peace process, all saying this needs to be investigated. i can tell you from my experience that there was fobs from b is really officials, is something that is unprecedented. we heard from the foreign minister, you've heard from the defense minister benny got you heard from natalie bennett bennett, the prime minister in the class. it addressing this directly saying that there will be an investigation initially saying that what the israeli army thought was that
5:26 pm
potentially she had been hit by palestinian gunmen during an exchange of fire in janine you now have, according to one, is already german, incredibly good, strong connections quoting the israeli chief of staff saying that they can now no longer really tell which side fires that he regrets the death and that an end of the investigation team has been set up. we're trying to get this confirmed by the army, but this journalist has solid sources of me. so, but policies will tell you that they don't trust any israeli investigation when it comes to how they operate. because there are a history of excessive force that multiple n g o organizations have always accused at all, we've seen it ourselves covering the stories here on the ground. so what she has done is, highlighting is something that is not new, unfortunately, to certain extent. and then that certain, the injury, naming
5:27 pm
a rest i as you were hearing from my colleagues throughout the day, you know, journals covering history, but they're also very much covering their own stroke. if you've covered this region for some time now, do you think i'm looking at those same that we've seen just in the last hour or so with thousands of people turning out? how do you think palestinians will react in the coming days and weeks with particular dates of significance coming up on the 15th of of may. could she arrange death be a tipping point in this tension? i am not going to predict that. i think you know, the ground here, i can tell you one thing about this region is that anything can happen. what i can tell you is that certainly sure route to read are done. it's hugely symbolic to someone who is a household name to palestinians, to watch the news at no, not here,
5:28 pm
but across the middle east. someone who is continuing coverage is ready, occupation that many people will tell you has become normalized even how many arab countries and states making deals with israel. so many palestinians will tell you that they feel somewhat abandoned when it comes to the governments of these countries. so it's a, it's a situation that i think is highlighted, putting the spotlight back on the continued occupation that many palestinians say has become normalized and is continuous. and it's almost like managing the occupation. many people will use that phrase. so what you see now is again, a highlight of an issue that is daily, that is ongoing, perhaps not the death of journalists, but certainly the things that are on the ground policies will tell you there's very little pressure when it come to the international community. actually i was year 2014, which is the last time when you had piece tools or talking about keystrokes that you had the secretary of state at that point in time, john kerry,
5:29 pm
i think 2 or 3 times during the space of a week, chuckling between them a loss and to jerusalem. by the time it was that it was a prime minister, netanyahu was in charge, but they didn't even get close to even touch scratching the surface of any potential piece of it could lead to a palestinian state. of course that the palestinians, wonderful on $967.00 lines which is occupied east jerusalem projects, capital the occupied west bank and gaza. and with the increased also of the situation at the alex almost compound, which is another issue that's been inflaming the ground. it's been leaving retro. yeah, you know, it's simply as pansy ins will tell you how ongoing situation that very little international pressure recently has been applied to to try and change. all right, staff, we appreciate you breaking down for us. stephanie deca live for us in the occupied east jerusalem outside showings house. he's what we know so far about what's
5:30 pm
happened. sharon was reporting on israeli rides in jeanine in the occupied west bank near daily rains. have been carried out there after a series of deadly attacks inside israel. she was shot in the head despite wearing her press fast. doctors say she was killed instantly and couldn't have been saved. even if she'd reached hospital. crowds of people carried her body from the hospital until it reached out. his ear is offices in ramallah, jamal i shall, has oh, don't shoot the messenger unless you're in his really soldier. in that case, you're seemingly okay with shooting to a reporter who's clearly identifiable as a journalist and poses no throat. should he and broccoli is the latest reports are to be killed by the israeli military, which has a long history of targeting journalists and news outlets. particularly al jazeera sharing,
