and now becoming the story. i read a whole lot of people around the world. how can us people know that what israel's doing is a good time and they feel help with the occupation she long reported on her just as the coffin started its final journey to the church. ah, mourners were pushed and beaten by his ready forces as a storm the hospital square, the pull berries retreating, her coffin nearly falling to the ground. ah! for to police in riot gear. on horseback, baffling scenes. at least one man pulled out of the hearse. is really forces also

removing the palestinian flag there. i knew they were not going to let this day go by peacefully. i was on the frontline when we were trying to exit the hospital while they were carrying her casket and a true they were on stage a stormed in and they were beating up everyone. it was very frightening to be honest, who is also tension when she reads body arrived outside the church in the christian quarter of the old city crowds filling the small streets. this ancient city. oh, oh that once the coffin made it inside, granted more peace shooting the broadly bro, the message of every palestinian. oh, suffering, don't forget to fly, not to be assassinated,

12:05 pm
events? well, there's only really one word that anybody is using. certainly palestinian is using amazon, devastated, devastated. though sharon, a barclays of funeral, was not a dignified one. that it was actually a fraught with violence from the israeli forces. those pictures that we've seen from the hospital not far away from where i'm standing right now, just up the hill over there. where are morn is the pull barrows were actually attacked as they carried sharon's casket out into the courtyard of the hospital and there she left the hospital at that stage. they were in the courtyard and he's really forces moved in those pictures have shocked her. palestinian certainly, if you take the temperature of palestinian social media again is the word devastation that comes to mind. these images are going to reverberate for a very, very, very long time. not because of the shocking nature of the pitches themselves,
12:06 pm
but the fact that israeli forces i didn't even respect somebody in death. now that's a real big issue for palestinians, and that's something that they will be talking about for a long time. but for serene elbow clay herself, even in death, she managed to highlight what it was like, living under occupation, living on the israeli occupation. not just that insulin there. but when the, the casket arrived by a call to the church. and jeff gates in the old city allison you were being arrested for mealy hoisting up the palestinian flag. and a statement of the european union said it's appalled by what happened during the funeral. part of it reads the e condemns the disproportionate use of force and the disrespectful behavior by the israeli police against the participants of the morning procession. allowing for a peaceful farewell without harassment and humiliation is minimal human respect and independent us senator bernie sanders, who votes with the democrats. tweeted saying that the funeral attack is an outrage
12:07 pm
. he added the united states must condemn as the biden administration, though stopped short of that referring to what happened as disturbing and an intrusion has i want house corresponding kimberly how could as mourners attending journalists sharina clay funeral were attacked by israeli security forces. white house for a secretary gen saki, simply called it an intrusion, but refused to condemn the attacks called these images deeply disturbing of israeli police beating mourners who are carrying this casket. he said that we regret the intrusion, you condemn these actions. i think when we said they were disturbing, we, obviously we're not, we're not justifying them, but i think i will leave my comments at what i said, go ahead. but her answers didn't sit well with reporters who pressed for an explanation as to why president biden is allowing israel a u. s. allies receive billions annually in military funding to treat sharina
12:08 pm
funeral and the investigation into her death, an american citizen. with such disrespect, when american journalists, i've given you a green nobody way for investigation, this is their house to the russians. why is trying to get away with this? why not put in put an independent wiring opinions not be the history cable in an investigating itself. we understand that there are investigations by both sides. we've offered our assistance to the israelis, to the palestinians, and we are prepared to provide that. should they want it still, when asked if president biden had even contact as sharina family, or if he would use his leverage with the israelis to bring sharina killers to account. this was the answer that the president, any plan to speak with you really government directly from the ongoing investigation. i don't have any cause to predict at this point in time. the president himself appeared a short time later but had little to add. i don't know all the detail,
12:09 pm
but i know it has to be investigated. indeed, despite an american journalist being killed, president biden refused to condemn the attacks on mourners at her funeral. even as earlier in the day, president biden met with king of della of jordan in the oval office to discuss the escalation of violence between israelis and palestinians. in the region. the un security council made no mention of israel in its response to sharing of death. and a statement had said it strongly condemned the killing of palestinian american journalist sharina blackly. and that it conveyed sympathy and deepest condolences to shriek family. it also called for an immediate thorough, transparent, and fair and impartial investigation into her killing. the reiterated bit journalists should be protected as civilians. an initial report by the israeli military says it's difficult to determine the exact source of gunfire which killed
12:10 pm
sharing. it's not rolling out fault by israeli soldiers, according to israeli media, and the minute trees inquiry is looking at 2 scenarios. one that sharin was hit by palestinian to 5 bullets towards is way the army vehicles in the 2nd. it's considering whether and is ready soldier inadvertently hit serene when returning fire. witnesses and the palestinian health ministry facial marine was hit by and israeli police are the in c s is an old fessor at queens university in toronto, canada. he says hearings killing and the attack during her funeral are astounding to have knowledge of the fact that a journalist doing her job, covering events unoccupied palestine for the past 2 decades. with gun down simply for that purpose. to stop her from reporting on the matter. that's one thing. it's quite another to see the response of the occupying power. it's police, it's authorities occupied jerusalem and to,
12:11 pm
to do what they did during the funeral procession to violently be civilians. paul bearers who are simply just trying to bring the body of the deceased, killed reporter to our final resting place. i. i was struck done by my at all. i'm served with the united nations in occupies palestine and lucan truce for over a decade. i'm very familiar with the area, look as an occupied territory, the occupying power. israel is not sovereign in that territory cannot as a matter of international law be sovereign and therefore it goes out of its way stops at nothing really, to ensure that any expressions of palestinian nationalism national symbols including the flag or non presence, certainly not in events that might emerge as this seemed to have been to be a demonstration in addition to a funeral of palestinian national fervor as an occupied territory be occupied
12:12 pm
palestinian territory to use the un terminology. the only people that are sovereign in that territory or at least have a right to sovereignty and territory are themselves the palestinian people. and therefore israel will do nothing, will stop at nothing rather to ensure that that doesn't happen. israeli settlers have a legally storm the palestinian home and the occupied westbank. thousands of people rushed into the vacant 3 story building in hebron, which was undergoing renovation shows ready soldiers blocking palestinian residents from stopping on thursday. israel approved fund legally billed 4400 more homes for settlers in the west bank. the rest of the day's news is heads. g 7 foreign ministers, all the final day of meetings to show up support for ukraine also. ah
