8:08 pm
and we will inform her family, the u. s customs official and popular authorities of the results of the investigation. all indications evidence and witnesses confirmed that she was assassinated by israeli special units and video analysis is contradicting israel's original account of the shooting catch up as what a young explains us just out of the book. shortly after sharina lockley was killed, the israeli government began circulating this video. it shows an armed palestinian firing his weapon. israel says as shows how the veteran al jazeera correspondent was likely shot by palestinian gunfire and not by its forces. but that's disputed by rights groups. witnesses and journalists who've analyzed the video, israel says this is where the palestinian fighter opened fire. from this point, jerusalem base human rights organization selim says there are too many walls, alleys and buildings, blocking the site where sharin was shot. and gps verification and dozens of video
8:09 pm
clips shows. this is where is really soldiers were located as a rated a home. and janine, it shows a direct line of fire to where sharon was shot and killed. the site is also far from the palestinian resistance fighter who was about 260 meters away. there is no line of sight between one location and the other. and in fact, our researcher into staking him a few minutes to walk from one location to the other location. so it is absolutely clear, there is no question about it. the footage on which day is really government based, it's false. claim is does not show gun fire. a babs has killed shooting a walk law and injured recall. it. a witness says is really, forces were not under attack. was lawn when the journalists arrive they were surprised because the occupation forces were closing the street with their military vehicles. and then they started shooting at them. a man tried once again to
8:10 pm
retrieve sharon's body for we were not aware at that point that she had been killed . he tried to provide 1st aid to her, so they started shooting at him and the bullets had a tree over his head. the guys who were not throwing stones, nor shooting, there was no form of resistance going for me. the european union has called for an independent investigation into her death. and the u. s. envoy to the un has call for sharina killing to be transparently investigated. the announcement on investigation is, was israel's mosca tried, and unfortunately successful in tricks and blanket impunity didn't resume provides itself is rosalyn not investigate israel white washers and the investigation is just the 1st or rather the announcement on the investigation is just the 1st stage in this whitewash. oh, many analysts say there, skeptical justice will follow. israel has a track record of not punishing its soldiers who have committed crimes against
8:11 pm
palestinians. ha, and it's never child. one of its soldiers for the killing of a journalist. katya little piece of the young out is here. as we heard earlier, the palestinian president is taking the case to the international criminal court. ho brennan is in the hague and reports that the point is to send israel a clear message. the central allegation is that israel is systematically targeting journalists who are operating in the occupied territories in the west bank. and in garza, on that israel is, is essentially failing to investigate when it incidents when they care to the, the occur to the extent that might constitute a breach of international law. and in some cases, many people argue my constitute a war crime. the frequency of the incidence give rise to serious and real concerns that israel is, is operating either a formal or at the very least,
8:12 pm
an informal policy that the journalists to somehow fair game, the journalists, organizations, the i, f, j and, and other organizations they, they have a case ongoing here they submitted it last month, a complaint against israelis. what the campaign is that want to do is at sharon's name to the list that has already been submitted to the eyes to the i see, see here and put up front and center of the of the attempt to, to get justice for the journalists who they say are being wrongly illegally. they say targets it by israeli soldiers when they go. but as they're going about that the journalistic duties rally to can the moraine strains, life is taking place outside the d's will cost said the b b. c. headquarters in london, a skate are corresponding. nadine bama here is there. an talk is free. what's been happening so far and what's the turn out like the?
8:13 pm
well, it's a small but passionate crowd pool is you're talking about what some journalists to doing in terms of trying to achieve justice. well, that's been a big theme here. we've got journalists from palestine from other countries, but just people in general do feel shocked by the king of sure, you know, but i could have been reminders that she is far from the 1st part of. can you journalists to have been targeted by the israeli metric, reminders of how few investigations and how you sanctioned there have been 4 people perpetrating. what in the words of a policy and busted at britain was the murder of a palestinian journalist. there are people here who being who they occupied was, find the scene for themselves, the situation under the occupation, many of the speakers explaining to people who didn't know charade, that not only was she didn't scream,

8:19 pm
the international criminal court. all of these mechanisms that exist for exactly this, protecting the innocent, protecting the vulnerable, protecting civilians. in situations of arm conflict, we have not got a lack of options here. what we have a lack of is political will. so what we need to do is turn all of this condemnation, all of this a pulled, you know, sentences that are coming out of the mouth of politicians and you and officials and you know, kings and queens around the world. we need to turn that into action. we need to turn that into an actual investigation that produces a report that produces some justice and that we see finally, someone being held to account for this heinous crime. or the palestinian american congress woman rashid, a type has been outspoken on the killing of serene abu, aptly. she also said that the bod and administration needs to use the funding. it gives israel as leverage to hold it. accountable. shaheen was not only

8:24 pm
the expectation is that it will take several months. but that of the fins will be accepted because they have a very large and very well trained army. so they say we are an asset to nato. it will change the security lay out in europe significantly, and this is not exactly what freshman put wanted when he said that he wanted to invade ukraine, because nature was creeping too much close to the russian border when finland joins, than the border with nato, between russia and nato will actually double. so it's basically quite ironic that because of the war and russia wanting to be further away from natal, nato is actually coming closer of really face is back as for lank. as prime minister manila wickland thinker has been sworn in. he's already been prime minister 5 times may hinder roger pox have resigned on monday off to weeks of protest calling for him and his brother,
