A video clip showed colleague Shireen Abu Aqleh's attempt to hide from the Israeli occupation bullets at the moment of the injury of colleague Ali Al-Samoudi prior to her assassination, while the US State Department renewed its calls for a transparent investigation.

The clip, which was documented by Al-Jazeera photographer Magdy Bannoura, revealed that colleague Sherine took shelter in the wall and the tree in her location.

Colleague Shireen Abu Aqleh also turned to her colleague Ali after he was injured, and her last words were "hurt me" and she repeated them twice, before she was directly targeted by an Israeli bullet.


American invitations

The US State Department has renewed its call for a comprehensive and transparent investigation into the killing of Al-Jazeera correspondent Shireen Abu Aqleh, and stressed the need for the investigation to include determining who is responsible for the killing.

And 56 members of the US Congress signed a letter calling on the US authorities to conduct an investigation into the murder of colleague Shireen Abu Akleh.

In their letter, members of Congress expressed their deep concern over the killing of the Al Jazeera reporter, and called for the protection of journalists around the world at all costs.

In the letter, the members said that the State Department described the killing of Shireen Abu Aqleh as an insult to the press, and welcomed the ministry's statements and actions taken so far in support of a thorough investigation.

They also called on the Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation "FBI" (FBI) to conduct this investigation, given what they described as the fragility of the situation in the region and the conflicting news about the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh.

Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that journalist Shireen Abu Aqleh was shot dead by Israeli forces, and that this matter cannot be allowed to happen using American resources and taxpayer money.

The Democratic representative emphasized that the demand for human rights for the Palestinians is not anti-Semitic.


Palestinian welcome

In turn, a member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, Hussein Al-Sheikh, welcomed the US State Department's call for an investigation into the assassination of Shireen Abu Aqleh, after Israel's decision to close the criminal investigation file.

Al-Sheikh said in a tweet that the US State Department's call for a comprehensive and transparent investigation into the assassination of Abu Aqila is welcome.

Yesterday, Friday, the Palestinian Foreign Ministry renewed its accusation that Israel was trying to evade responsibility for the killing of colleague Shireen Abu Akleh.

Ahmed Al-Deek, political advisor to the Palestinian Foreign Minister, said that Israel is trying to evade responsibility for the execution of the martyr Shireen Abu Aqleh.

Al-Deek confirmed - in a previous interview with Al-Jazeera - that the Palestinian Authority will not hand over to the occupation army any evidence related to proving that it committed this heinous crime, as he described it.

The Palestine Mission to the United Nations asked - in a tweet on Twitter - who will be held accountable for the killing of Shireen Abu Aqleh, with the Israeli army's decision not to investigate her death?!

The Israeli occupation army had announced its refusal to open a criminal investigation into the circumstances of the assassination of colleague Shireen Abu Akleh.

The Associated Press quoted a military source as saying that the Israeli army identified the gun from which the bullet may have been fired, which killed fellow Al-Jazeera correspondent Shireen Abu Akleh.

However, the Israeli army spokesman, Avichai Adraee, said that there is no way at the present time to open an investigation into the circumstances of the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh.

Amnesty International described Israel's decision not to investigate the assassination of our colleague Shireen Abu Aqleh as a violation of international law.

The organization indicated that the occupation's failure to investigate is an additional violation of Shirin Abu Aqleh's right to life, and described the Israeli decision as a clear violation of Israel's obligations under international law.
