Press Group Calls for Zionist Accountability in Media Deaths

AL-QUDS (Dispatches) – The occupying regime’s military has systematically evaded accountability in the deaths of 20 journalists over the past two decades, launching slow and opaque investigations that have never resulted in prosecution or punishment, an international press-freedom group said in a report Tuesday. The Committee to Protect Journalists issued its report ahead of the one-year anniversary of the death of Shireen Abu Akleh — a Palestinian-American journalist who was killed while covering a Zionist military raid in the occupied West Bank. The army has said Abu Akleh was likely killed by Zionist fire, but said the shooting was accidental and not announced any disciplinary action.
