Al-Azhar Al-Sharif strongly condemns the killing of the Palestinian journalist, Sherine Abu Akleh, who was shot dead by the terrorist Zionist entity, Wednesday, while reporting the crimes committed by this entity in Jenin, northern the western bank.
Al-Azhar stresses that this heinous crime committed against press and journalists strongly proves to the world the atrocity of this entity and the crimes it commits, even against unarmed journalist, whose crime was nothing but being a Palestinian journalist, who airs reality and communicates the voice of the oppressed in her homeland to the whole world.
As Al-Azhar Al-Sharif mourns the late journalist, who was a powerful voice for the truth, it extends its sincere condolences to the journalist’s family, colleagues and Palestinian people. Al-Azhar calls on the international community and concerned organizations to shoulder their responsibility in investigating this crime against humanity and international laws and charters, and bringing the killers to trial. In addition, Al-Azhar calls upon them to work hard to stop the terrorism of the Zionist entity and its attempts to obscure the facts by killing and targeting journalists and reporters.
