The U.S. Justice Department recently informed the Israeli Justice Ministry that the FBI has opened an investigation into the death of Palestinian American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, who was killed in May while covering an Israeli military raid in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin, Israeli officials said Monday.
White House National Security Council spokesperson referred Axios to the DOJ.
“Our thoughts remain with the Abu Akleh family as they grieve this tremendous loss. Not only was Shireen an American citizen, she was a fearless reporter whose journalism and pursuit of truth earned her the respect of audiences around the world,” the NSC spokesperson added.
Here are some member of Congress on this topic.
For more than six months, the family of slain Palestinian American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh has been awaiting answers. Finally, the U.S. will investigate her murder by the Israeli military.

If these reports are correct, this is a step in the right direction towards justice and accountability. I’m proud to have introduced the #JusticeForShireen Act, requiring a US investigation to provide answers into the killing of American citizen, Shireen Abu Akleh. https://t.co/5SkBLvmvSS

Shireen Abu Akleh was in the middle of a firefight where the IDF was engaged with Palestinian terrorists who were hiding among civilians in a camp in Jenin.
The world immediately jumped to the conclusion that she was assassinated by the evil Jews.
Everyone just accepted the Palestinian narrative, despite (because) the Palestinians lie constantly about Israel.
Now the FBI is going to investigate her death and Democrats on Congress are ready to convict Israel simply because Israel.
The Biden administration declared Thursday that Saudi Arabia’s crown prince should be considered immune from a lawsuit over his role in the killing of a U.S.-based journalist, a turnaround from Joe Biden’s passionate campaign trail denunciations of Prince Mohammed bin Salman over the brutal slaying.
The administration said the senior position of the crown prince, Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler and recently named prime minister as well, should shield him against a suit brought by the fiancée of slain Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi and by the rights group Khashoggi founded, Democracy for the Arab World Now.
The Saudi crown prince had Khashoggi murdered at the Saudi embassy in Turkey, cut into pieces, and brought home in a duffel bag.
But the US Government is now protecting the prince from a lawsuit.
There is no group of Congress, especially from the Left, calling for accountability for Saudi Arabia.
It couldn’t be clearer that thr ONLY motion here I’d Jew hatred.
This has nothing to do with principles or protection of journalists.
This is just Jew hating motherfuckers using every opportunity to attack Israel.
