New York Times report: Bullet that killed Shireen Abu Akleh was fired from the approximate position of an Israeli military vehicle

WASHINGTON, Monday, June 20, 2022 (WAFA) - A New York Times investigation concluded that the bullet that killed Palestinian-American journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, was fired from “the approximate position of an Israeli military vehicle,” it said.

The New York Times report, titled “The Killing of Shireen Abu Akleh: Tracing a Bullet to an Israeli Convoy” said that the bullet that killed Abu Akleh was most likely fired by a soldier from an elite unit.

“The evidence reviewed by The Times showed that there were no armed Palestinians near her when she was shot. It contradicted Israeli claims that, if a soldier had mistakenly killed her, it was because he had been shooting at a Palestinian gunman,” said the report.
