As Twitchy reported earlier, Shireen Abu Aqleh, a journalist for Al Jazeera, was shot and killed while covering an alleged raid by Israeli troops on the Jenin refugee camp. Palestinian sources blamed Israel for her death, while a video posted to social media from the perspective of the Palestinian terrorists shows them claiming they shot a soldier. Since the reporter was wearing body armor and a helmet, she could easily have been mistaken for one of the Israeli troops in the area.

The White House has sent its condolences:

Jen Psaki didn’t blame Israel directly, but not surprisingly, Rep. Rashida Tlaib did:

For the record, IDF spokesperson Avi Mayer recently said he’s waiting for the results of the official investigation:

Tlaib didn’t need a video to know that Israeli soldiers “murdered” Aqleh.
