IDF Spokesman: Palestinians know why they are evading investigation

INN, May 11, 2022

IDF Spokesman Brigadier General Ran Kochav responds to an incident in which Al Jazeera correspondent Shireen Abu Aqleh was killed and rejects Palestinian claims that she was certainly hit by IDF fire.

"We offered the Palestinians a joint investigation and they took the body, maybe they know why they refuse such a joint investigation," Kochav said in an interview with 103FM.
According to him, following the Palestinians' refusal to jointly investigate, "they can blame whoever they want, because the truth is not their guiding light."

"As part of the activity in the Jenin refugee camp, suspects fired heavily at the force and threw explosives. The force returned fire. No injuries were identified. There are no casualties for our forces." An IDF spokesman stressed that the journalist may have been hit by the terrorists' fire. The incident is under investigation. "

MK Itamar Ben Gvir responded to the death of a reporter for Al-Jazeera: Freedom of the press is precious to all of us, but al-Jazeera's journalists have become part of the enemy forces that do not do journalistic work, but serve as bulletproof vest for terrorists and I would not be surprised if it was hit by the fire of its forces.

Meanwhile, IDF and GSS forces have continued to act in recent days to arrest terrorists suspected of terrorist activity. Yesterday, six terrorists were arrested and taken for questioning by security forces.

As part of one of the arrests, two wanted men suspected of aiding the terrorists who carried out the murderous attack that took place in the city of Elad were arrested in the village of Rumana near Jenin.

At the same time, two suspects were arrested in the village of Qarawat Bani Hassan in Samaria for aiding the shooting attack that took place in Ariel.
