7:16 pm
and the occupied west bank last month. according to experts, the green tip bullet is capable of piercing armor and is used in a m for rifle. when we simulated the green tip bullet using 3 d models and according to ballistic and forensic experts, the munition that ended sharina life was a 5.56 millimeter caliber. the bullet was 1st designed and manufactured in the united states. according to the palestinian prosecutor's office and the autopsy report, the bullet entered, the lower part of cheering her ricocheted off her helmet and lodged itself in her head. i think another interesting fact, fact who has to be brought into consideration is the fact that there are a number of strike marks on the tree next to which strain were standing. and that indicates to me that the, there was not, she didn't die as a result of a random shot. as a result that was going on at the moment. the fact that there were
7:17 pm
a number of rounds, it struck lack tray. and that she was also hit that indicate that she it looked very much like she was been targeted time. we have used 3 d models to identify the types of weapons israeli soldiers were using. in this video. we found it was a m for rifle. the type of gun that uses 5.56 caliber bullets open source data supports the fact the israeli special unit accused of shooting sharin uses this type of weapon used in a non combat situation. fight by the israeli army. clearly identifiable journalist doing her job justice assuring is yet to be delivered. accountability, still not taken place. questions remain unanswered, including if an order was given to kill her. why was she shot despite been clearly marked as a journalist and posed no threat. what made an israeli soldier target her from such
7:18 pm
a short range? all of this is further reason why the palestinian authority and l just a media network have demanded an independent investigation into the killing of sharing a black. like i said, bake jazeera. the more in this that's bringing agnes kalamazoo. she is the secretary general of amnesty international and joined us from london. agnes, thanks so much for being on the program. amnesty international is calling for an independent inquiry just as al jazeera isn't of the human rights organizations are . what would that investigation into schraner death look like and what details need to be ironed out for it to proceed? a sense almost, i want to highlight how deeply are tombly and though the work and the investigation that you have conducted and isa is finding. and the fact that someone actually re abdur a claim was,
7:19 pm
are working for angela. she was an icon of for the palestinian population for the middle east or pollution. she was seemingly or keanda or in a fairly direct and targeted way all of these. and she was wearing a vest, you know, pointing out to her as an, as, as a representative of the, of the press corps, all of these point to a situation and a killing, which is extremely concerning. which is in keeping the with the pattern of unlawful killings of palestinian in the occupied territory. that amnesty, a lot of them are documented and the need for an independent impartial investigation has never been higher than,
7:20 pm
than in the current term situation. that investigation should clarify the circumstances of the killing. it should clarify. oh, who pulled the trigger? why? oh, was sheree seemingly killed in the way she was killed? possibly. targeted was she found it to your journalist asked her very valid question. that investigation can be carried out to and by the international criminal court because the killing of shearing, letting been very clearly stated, is a war crime. unless such must be carried an investigation should be included and could be carried out by the international criminal court. the investigation could also be carried out by the commission of inquiry of the united nation, which as
7:21 pm
a broad mandate and could investigate that particular king andy, although unlawful killings in the o p t. so how does the when dealing ways press freedom? the special have alternative ways of violence against truman. the special have also dealing with the situation in the occupied territories. all of them as a mandate and the possibility to carry out this form of investigation. though there are different avenues that are possible. agnes, you mentioned there, the international criminal court, how important is their role and the evidence that is brought to them? no, for our audience who may not be familiar with the role of the i c say, how do they fit into this investigation? well, the international criminal court as a mandate to investigate war crimes committed in and on the occupied territories. and that mandate as not to be activated
7:22 pm
yet to this day. but the prosecutor, the, the previous prosecutor of the international criminal court as made the decision that there we have sufficient evidence to mandate to require that the i c, c carried out a full investigation. it is now up to the current, a prosecutor of the i. c, c, to activate that decision. it is extremely important. the situation in the occupied territories is one of great concern. it is characterized by also keys by arbitrary tension, by the, you know, violations of freedom of movement are impossible reach your family. or even if you cation allegation, an act of torture and so on and so forth. if the killing of she really is
7:23 pm
part of that back to this is why the i c c could focus on that particular killing as part of law as a symbolic or all other kidneys taking place in the o t t. indeed, let, let me remind you maybe that the international federation of jonah is the ballast indian, jonah, the sandy kid, the international center of justice for palestinians. i asked, i submitted a new complaint to the i. c. c. about about the killings of sharing here in the u. k. down the street chambers, which is a very well known legal firm. what human rights. some is assisting those a fort so that the phone complaint can be delivered to the international criminal court. you know, they're fully i, c,
7:24 pm
c to take on that case would be would send a full meter boy crucial message that i, you know, that, that the, the, i can fight system which allowed not only for the killing or sharing, but for the puny for that healing that these cannot go on and that they are actors that are prepared to denounce, to act, to dismantle the system that allows the king of sherry, and which is now a being further enforced by the impunity, which is already seeking to push forward. ok, we have to leave it there unfortunately for another time, but we appreciate your insights. agnes calamine, the secretary general of amnesty international. thanks here in science. thank you very much. the u. k. government has approved the extradition of wiki leagues founder join assigned to the us to face spying charges wiki late. the move
