IBNA- Institute for Palestinian Studies will publish a book providing documents on the martyrdom of Shireen Abu Akleh, the Palestinian-American journalist who worked for Al Jazeera and was shot dead by Israeli gunmen on May 11.
The book also pays tribute to her 25 years of efforts as one of the most prominent names across the Middle East and her decades of reporting in the Israeli-occupied Palestinian territories for the Arabic-language channel Al Jazeera.
Shireen was born in Bayt al-Muqaddas on April 3, 1971, and after attending secondary school went to Yarmouk University in Jordan, from which she graduated with a bachelor's degree in print journalism.
she was shot and killed while covering a raid by the occupier Israeli army on the Jenin refugee camp in the West Bank. Al Jazeera, an Agence France-Presse photojournalist, and the Palestinian Ministry of Health reported that the Zionists killed her. Initially, Israel claimed a Palestinian might have killed her, but on May 13 they confessed that a probe found that it was possible she had been killed either by them.
Separate investigations conducted successively by the Associated Press, Bellingcat, CNN, The New York Times, and The Washington Post all independently concluded that fire from an Israeli unit was the most likely cause of Akleh's death.
As well as documents and investigations on the cause of her martyrdom, the book features interviews with her family and memorial services held for her throughout the world.
