In another post, Bella Hadid also uploaded a screenshot of the news that wrote the military statement that “they (journalists) are armed with cameras.”
Bella Hadid again stated that journalism is not a crime and cameras are not a form of violence.
“Truth is not equivalent to death,” he wrote.
Bella Hadid uploaded it all shortly after an Al Jazeera journalist was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers while covering clashes between the Zionist state troops and Palestinians on Wednesday (11/5).
One Palestinian official reported that the journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, was “killed” by Israeli forces while reporting on the attack in Jenin City.
As reported by Reuters, the Palestinian Ministry of Health later confirmed the death of Abu Akleh. They also stated that another reporter, Ali Samodi, was injured.
In his news, Al Jazeera wrote “Israeli forces shot dead Al Jazeera journalist Shiren Abu Akleh in the West Bank, according to the Palestinian Ministry of Health.”
Al Jazeera at the time reported that the cause of Abu Akleh’s death was still unclear. However, the video of the incident shows Abu Akleh being shot in the head.
Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said the death of an Al Jazeera journalist amid clashes in the West Bank on Wednesday (11/5) was the responsibility of armed Palestinians.
“Based on the information we have gathered, it is probable that the Palestinian armed, who fired random shots at the time, was responsible for the journalist’s death,” Bennett said in a statement.
