Israeli forces attack funeral of veteran journalist Shireen Abu Aqla – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

There’s been international condemnation of Israel’s security forces after they attacked mourners and pall bearers at the funeral of the Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Aqla in Jerusalem.

The Al Jazeera reporter died after being shot in the head while covering a raid by Israeli forces on Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.

Israeli police charged into her funeral procession in Jerusalem, where thousands of people had gathered to mourn her. Mourners and pallbearers were beaten with batons, stun grenades were fired and at one point the casket was almost dropped to the ground.

The United States was among countries and organisations that condemned the actions of Israel’s security forces.
