Rachel Corrie and others

Israel murdered Palestinian-American journalist and Al Jazeera veteran Shireen Abu Akleh.

Following multiple independent investigations proving without a shadow of doubt that Abu Akleh had been killed by Israeli fire, the Israeli government finally admitted that it was a “high possibility” that it was an Israeli bullet that killed the journalist wearing a clearly marked press vest and helmet.

Israel murdered 23-year-old American student Rachel Corrie. Corrie was crushed by an Israeli bulldozer as she tried to prevent the illegal demolitions of Palestinian homes. Immediately after killing Corrie, the Israeli army had said it was an unfortunate accident caused by Corrie herself.

In September 2000,  a 12-year-old Palestinian boy, Mohammed Al-Durrah, was hiding behind his father, before ultimately being shot and killed by an Israeli sniper.

Mohammed’s murder at the hands of the Israeli army was clearly caught on video. But even this did not prevent Israel from following its usual routine and trying to deflect responsibility.
