CNN suggests Al Jazeera journalist was killed in ‘targeted attack’ by IDF troops
Network says forensics and firearms experts believe evidence points to controlled bursts directed at Abu Akleh; AP probe also suggests IDF gunfire killed her, but notes uncertainty.
The IDF said the allegation was “entirely unfounded.”
Abu Akleh was shot dead while covering clashes between soldiers and Palestinian gunmen during an IDF operation in the city. The Israel Defense Forces has not ruled out that Abu Akleh was accidentally killed by Israeli fire, but says Palestinian gunmen may also be at fault
