“They started shooting at us without any warning”

Jerusalem24– Palestinian journalist Ali Samoudi, who was shot in the back and hospitalized this morning, described the moment he and fellow journalist Shireen Abu Akleh were shot at by Israeli forces.

“We were going in to cover the military operation in Jenin camp and suddenly they started shooting us without any warning or without asking us to leave,” Samoudi said. “The first bullet hit me, and the second hit Shireen. She was killed in cold blood. They are specialists in killing Palestinian women.”

Responding to Israeli Military allegations that it was in fact Palestinians who had shot Abu Akleh, Samoudi claimed “there was no shooting when we were at the scene from Palestinians. If there were any shooting we would have not gone in that direction.”
