    (ANSAmed) - TEL AVIV, 24 GIU - Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was not intentionally killed by any Israeli soldier, a military spokesman said in responding to the conclusions of an investigation conducted by the UN Human Rights Commission.

    "It is not possible to determine whether she was killed by a Palestinian gunman shooting indiscriminately in her area or inadvertently by an IDF soldier," a military spokesman said, adding that the fact that Palestinians had refused to hand over the bullet found in her head to the Israelis and to conduct a joint investigation with the US put their aims in question.
