“All the information we have gathered – including from the Israeli army and the Palestinian attorney general – corroborates the fact that the shots that killed Ms. Abu Akleh and injured her colleague Ali Sammoudi came from the Israeli security forces and not from of armed Palestinians as initially claimed by the Israeli authorities,” said Ravina Shamdasani, during a press briefing in Geneva.

The Palestinians out of the question
