1:05 am
thought you refused any joint investigation committee with israeli authorities because they have committed such a crime. we don't trust them, and we'll go immediately to the international criminal court in order to find the perpetrators and criminals philosophy. i just need a media network has described the 51 year old death as latent birds are making clear. it holds israel, responsible city and body was then taken from ramallah through the color, just check point to jerusalem, where she was born. the on friday there will be a funeral service in jerusalem. the very place she was proud to call home him alger zita. the occupied west bank mourners have been paying now respects and occupied east jerusalem mat assurance funeral on friday. stephanie deca with that the families here and friends,

receiving condolences after the body of sri and came to one of the hospitals here not to fight east jerusalem. and where it is remaining in the morgan till they bury her tomorrow on friday. well, did the police arrive? there were 2 palestinian flags outside they placed on the gates at the police arrive they remove them quite forcefully. and it was an altercation with some of the guys outside. they were arrested one of them, a very provocative, really a jury is really law that the policy in flag is illegal to be flown. but this is occupied is drew, some under international law recognized as occupied line. so this is what palestinians will tell you was just an example of something a very that's a normal situation. if you say a family and morning and even that being confronted in that way, also just to tell you sharina brother who flew in last night has been summoned. he was here earlier, has been summoned by the israeli police,
1:07 am
apparently to be discussed in terms of how to undertake the funeral tomorrow. thing to police in a way concerned about potential numbers or how this will go. so again, you know, giving you a sense of the control that is here, but again, you know, now just to bring you back here, you've got sharina, family, friends. also some of our colleagues from al jazeera, sitting here, receiving orders, receiving condolences. and they'll be here for the next couple of hours. and then as i said, the plan tomorrow in the afternoon, around 3 o'clock in the afternoon, the funeral will take place in a church inside the walls of the old city. and then she'll be laid to rest next to her parents in a cemetery. here in jerusalem, or israel's army is investigating whether one of its soldiers shot dead sharina blackly. according to the, according to reports from the washington post says the army is looking into 3 separate incidents connected to killing, as well as the wounding of
1:08 am
a colleague. initially, israel, it said the jealous a more likely hit by gunfire from armed palestinians, but multiple eye witness reports contradicted that claim is ready, forces are now said to be carrying out ballistic testing on the rifles of it. soldiers, ha, well and the other them here. i la to this might be a way to make the road for israel to acknowledge it is the reason behind this killing. yesterday there were trying to get the bullet that is now in the hands of the palestinian side with a bullet that killed sharina. barclay. i think they have nothing more to say no, no more justifications. and now understand how much international pressure there is . that's why we have seen the statement lou. these really position is turning in a way of video analysis of where sharon was killed contradicts israel's original account. of the shooting, catching up as a diane has more on that now. just out of the log book. shortly after sharina lockley was killed,
1:09 am
the israeli government began circulating this video. it shows an armed palestinian firing his weapon. israel says it 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 based 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 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 it into staking him
1:10 am
a few minutes to walk from one location to the other location. so is absolutely clear. there is no question about it. the footage on which day is really governmental based, it's false claim is does not show gunfire. a bout has killed shooting a walk law and injury, recalling a witness as is really forces were not under attack, was lawn. when the journalists arrived, 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 retrieve sharon's body. 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 hit a tree over his head. the guys who were not throwing stones, nor shooting, there was no form of resistance. for me, the european union has called for an independent investigation into her death. and the u. s. envoy to the un has called for sharina killing to be transparently investigated. the announcement on investigation is one of israel's most tried and
1:11 am
unfortunately successful. it tricks and blanket impunity dealers resume provides itself is really 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 they're skeptical. justice will follow. israel has a track record of not punishing its soldiers who have committed crimes against palestinians. huh. and it's never child one of its soldiers for the killing of a journalist castillo pistol, the young, how to 0. well, the death is sheena wigley has received global condemnation. the white house is called the transparency in any investigations. our white house correspondent, kimberly how kit has more. president biden is set to host king abdullah of jordan
