Bennett: Video indicates Palestinian gunfire killed Al Jazeera reporter

PM Naftali Bennett while deploring the death of the Shirin Abu Aqleh accused Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas of blaming Israel “without concrete evidence.” He pointed to video footage of a Palestinian gunman boasting they had killed an Israeli soldier and showing a fallen body, but in fact, no soldiers were injured.

The incident has wide ramifications in that the correspondent was also an US citizen.
