In a publicly released statement, Qatari media said, “New elements cited in this file clearly show that Shireen and her colleagues were targeted by Israeli occupation forces, based on video footage and eyewitness reports. The timing of the events”.
The same source added that the file contradicts “reports by Israeli authorities that the journalist died by mistake.”
“Evidence provided to the prosecution confirms that there was no confrontation or firing in the area where Shereen was located. The victims were targeted by Israeli forces,” the statement said.
Al-Jazeera also praised “the concern shown by the international community, human rights organizations and media freedom organizations in this case and their continued calls for the perpetrators of this heinous crime to be held accountable.”
