IDF says forensic analysis of bullet that killed ‘Al Jazeera’ reporter yielded inconclusive results
An Israeli team that conducted ballistic analysis tests on the bullet that killed Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh reached inconclusive results, according to a statement released by the Israel Defense Forces on Monday.
“The physical condition of the bullet does not allow for a conclusive determination regarding the source of fire that led to the death of the journalist,” the statement said.
“For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light.” Luke 8:17
“This past Saturday, the United States Security Coordinator for Israel and the Palestinian Authority (USSC) received the bullet that was alleged to have killed the journalist Shireen Abu Akleh from Palestinian authorities in order to conduct a professional and impartial ballistic examination,” the statement continued. “The bullet remained under the custodianship of Lieutenant General ( * * * ) Michael R. Fenzel after receiving it from the Palestinian authorities until it was returned yesterday (Sunday) after the examination was conducted.”
The statement added that the probe was conducted in a forensic laboratory in Israel and that “USSC representatives were present throughout the entire process.”
The IDF also noted that its own internal investigation “concluded that the source of the fire that led to the death of Ms. Abu Akleh could not be determined based on the available information.” The military emphasized that “no IDF soldier deliberately fired” at the journalist.
