Al Jazeera Reporter Killed in Firefight between Palestinian Terrorists, IDF in West Bank

(Ha'aretz) Jack Khoury - Shireen Abu Akleh, 51, a Jerusalem-based journalist for Al Jazeera, was killed on Wednesday during a raid by Israeli forces in the West Bank city of Jenin. Al-Quds newspaper reporter Ali Samodi was wounded. The Israeli military said it was looking into the possibility that the two were hit "by shots fired by Palestinian gunmen." During the raid, militants opened fire at the Israeli forces and hurled explosives at them, before the soldiers returned fire. "I don't think we killed her," said IDF spokesman Ran Kochav. "We proposed to the Palestinians to open a swift joint probe. If we indeed killed her, we'll take responsibility, but it doesn't seem to be the case."
