12:32 pm
perpetrators and criminals. world leaders are demanding those responsible be held accountable, the recalls for an independent and transparent investigation into her death. let's take a look at what we know about sharina killing, jamal a shell with this report. i don't shoot the messenger unless you're in israeli soldier. in that case, you're seemingly ok with shooting a reporter who's clearly identifiable as a journalist and poses no threat. should he and barclays is the latest reporter to be killed by the israeli military, which has a long history of targeting journalists and news outlets. particularly al jazeera sharing, a veteran reporter who spent her life covering events and occupied palestine was among a group of journalist documents and what was happening in janine early on wednesday . according to eye witnesses and video footage, she was wearing a safety vest and helmets, both of which clearly identified her as
12:33 pm
a member of the press. despite or maybe because of it. sure he was shot and killed . and we were going to filmed is really army operation. and suddenly they shot us without asking us to leave or stop filming the 1st bullet hit me and the 2nd bullet hit sharina. they killed her in cold blood because they are killers and specialize and killing only palestinian people. we had no resistance and there was no palestinian resistance at all at the same journalist movie. it was also shot and injured in the attack. there was no exchange of fire, so there is no possibility whatsoever. and they always use the excuses to cover up the crime, committing against palestinians, including the new agenda. according to rights groups. israel has killed 50 journalists since 2000 and injured more than 144 in the past 4 years alone.
12:34 pm
and this is also not the 1st time israel has intentionally targeted al jazeera. last year, the networks office in garza was born to rebel. while journalist travadone b did, he was assaulted by israeli forces, whilst reporting on israel's ethnic cleansing of arab residence in occupied east jerusalem shifter off neighbourhood. israeli authorities say they've launched an investigation of human rights groups said they have little faith in israeli justice, particularly with renowned organizations like human rights watch and amnesty international, accusing israel of implementing a system of apartheid that i, that i am human rights organizations, for example, like bit st. limb and is that a human rights organization? and that decided a long time ago that they are no longer going to even into the act with the
12:35 pm
complaint system within visit 80 army because it is not serious. it doesn't find israeli soldiers guilty. taught us foreign ministry whose country hosts the al jazeera network issue to statements with senior diplomats no one hotter 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 knows that in occupied palestine, no one safe from israel's bullets. not even journalists
12:36 pm
john m i lunch or young. i just 0. right, and these live pictures. now the ramallah checkpoint, i believe its columbia. i may be wrong. it's one of the checkpoints, as you move from ramallah into occupied east jerusalem. we are waiting for a blockhead, 40 that con boy to be moved over into our committee through for them having to be in the presidential compound in ramallah, where a state service was held. let's call to need it for him. who is there at the palestinian presidential headquarters? so i need to just run through what's happened. so i thought today and what the rest of the day has in store. hundreds of people have come to the presidential headquarters when she read and seeing that we have not seen before. we were just talking about our colleagues were saying we had no idea how
12:37 pm
much she was loved. people have been stopping the casket. the convoy that was coming in from the hospital to the presidential, had for the bidding has been growing roses at the cask just from her balcony consensus. every house in palestine has lost members. they feel like she was part of the family of stuck to friends who say that she reminds me of my childhood. i love the part of my childhood. this is a. busy from a student that has been listening to day and day out for 25 years, she had a strong impact. she was able to carry the palestinian narrative to the world. the question is, what is the world's going to do now? and this is exactly why i want to bring in our, i guess, mr. george. know,
12:38 pm
he's the head of the palestinian affairs unit at the u. s. embassy, miss, sir george. she is also an american citizen. we've heard officials from washington saying that they've met her. they know her what's next and how, how can we bring her just well, it's probably the most important today is to express our deepest condolences to her family but also journalistic family. and you know what you're doing today working continually, journalism is attribute to her. it's a tribute to serene attribute to her work or professionalism the legacy leaves behind. she was a close colleague of ours as well. always pushed us, always had the highest interest, been take rudy. i heard from people today that she was an example using journalism school. that's a strong legacy to leave behind. she left us far too early and we're going to mr shortly. but for some one to express my condolences as far as investigations. i
12:39 pm
mean, we want to make sure whoever kilter is held responsible. our understanding is that both israel and the palestinian authority are conducting investigations. we've called them to be as open and transparent as possible. we've also also offered our assistance. nobody has asked us for that yet, and we'd be asked to do that. but we stand ready to assist. we've heard a lot of people demanding accountability. they want you to do more. they want a strong statement. they want you not just to encourage the israeli government to hold those accountable. they want you to demand that can the u. s. government defend a citizen, there is that has been killed while doing her job. well, it hits 2 things that are really important to us. one is the protections us citizens abroad. that's one of our top priorities. you're the one is sternness, stick, freedom, and journalist ec safety. those are things we take very, very seriously around the world. we have numerous instances, unfortunately,
12:40 pm
of journalists being killed by they work. we push all the time for accountability on these cases. we hope that we find it in this case. we hope so too. we hope that you continue pushing for shootings. legacy. we continue pushing for her to get just her legacy secure. she's one of the policy. the american journalist behind was sorely mister and mac. you're right, we need to know we need to work in the following up. thank you so much, mr. george. know, he's the head of the palestinian affairs in the u. s. embassy city in. if one of more than 55, palestinian journalists who were killed over the past few years by israeli fire. so we're not talking about an incident here or to be is really army often targets journalists when we go covered confrontations, clashes. and if you talk to alison in doing this,
12:41 pm
they would tell you that this is intended to stop telling the truth to suffer poor thing on what is going on and they need it for him. thank you. well, the shaw shaw is a friend assuring and he explained what she meant for palestinians. every one standing here has its own story, was shooting as friends we experienced with this amazing person, pure soul, an innocent christian journalist who always waited for serene to tell us the story . we're losing to day a great storyteller, a supporter of freedom, a supporter of of occupied people, suffered from bobbitt standard, suffered from occupation from racism, from terrorism. and today i think when should lift us lift over our shoulders,
12:42 pm
a huge responsibility to continue the message and to hold the letter that we are, the people of freedom we do have derived the policy of people have the full right of self determination and to protect our future's our kids, the future when we live and we can see our kids do have the same rights because unfortunately, every day we're suffering from people give themselves, but i to execute us as the palestinian soul has no value at all. the last time we saw the presidential least full of this amount due to amount, you can see the headsets there. it's when we said goodbye to yes. what are the 4th order? greatest leader. so it's, i think the policy of people are giving a good will fit that she deserves fear in ramallah unto moral proceed. and i believe if the boarders were open for the seniors were, came from all around the world from garza, from jerusalem, from abroad to sit, to say goodbye to sharon. let's get more now on the israeli human rights

12:44 pm
one which deals propaganda was basing its false claims could in no shape or form depicted gunfire. at the journalists, there is no line of sight between one location and the other. and in fact, our researcher into taking him a few minutes to walk from one location to the other location, you know, spend on the situation is one of the israel is most tried and unfortunately successful tricks and the last impunity that provides itself. israel does not investigate israel washers and the investigation is just the 1st or rather the announcement on the investigation is just the 1st stage in the whitewashed investigations are not meant to establish accountability. they are meant to protect the perpetrators the occupied palestinian territory is one of the most dangerous

12:52 pm
the stories of many palestinians looked at him. how much they you my condolences 1st you've known as before, you became a prime minister. can you tell me your memories with what should remove the national figure? a startle or butterball lied to ladies. well fortunate, george my list saw emotional when it comes to thanks. so professional. when it comes to journalism. yet, but 3 dick, ballast theme young. even though she has an american passport, but her roots are so deep rooted in jerusalem and her family as well. and i have seen the shooting are broadly nearly everywhere. in condolences houses and celebrations and demonstrations and citizens, she name is not only a correspondence is not only a journalist, but also she lived the cases. and she was really bad of the event. and she was that
12:53 pm
the board thing about every single detail of their by the scene and daily life. and now it is everything that people are reporting about shooting at a time when she was reporting about office. it's set out of words, the term kind of stay. yeah. palestine in prime ministers, as you can see, she touched so many heights. we've never expected that out. poor of love. we know she's known, we know she's a star. we know she's famous. but for people to be stopping the convoy coming from the hospitality throwing roses at her casket. but not seen that before. i have not seen that many people come to the presidential headquarters to wit headphone well, clapping foot head chanting slogans. it's hard to put words
12:54 pm

12:55 pm
if used to join air as a or to participate in a joint. israeli palestinian investigation saying that those are the ones who killed her. these sentiments are shared by many palestinians. you don't expect justice from year to kill it. so the, the people in the friends, the journalists, the palestinians to day, they demand justice. now the world has seen what happened. they know that every palestinian heart is aching. they want to know what's next. how can we bring that beautiful soul justice? this is the question. is there a sense need here? that there will be justice for sharon because as you've been reporting all morning and you know, palestinians i have been killed with impunity and palestinian journalists have
12:56 pm
been targeted to is there a sense that there will be, is there hope for, for justice? i guess is my question. the short answer is no. this is why there's so much frustration here. and she's the one of more than 55 journalists who it couldn't by israeli forces fired in the past few and, and, and for the past years. and what has happened? did the killing of journalists or journalists stop? so i've read an article this morning by a palestinian journalist who says that should in has lived between 2 areas of journalism. at a time when the palestinian voice was interred was under reported, the palestinian narrative wasn't dead and shitty in was that a voice that one of many voices but was an important voice that carried that
