Sen. Van Hollen Calls on Biden Admin to Release Report on Israeli Killing of Shireen Abu Akleh

HeadlineJun 07, 2023

Democratic Senator Chris Van Hollen is calling on the U.S. State Department to declassify its report on the killing last year of Palestinian American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh by Israeli forces. Van Hollen said the report offers some valuable information, though noted access to key witnesses was denied and the findings cannot be considered a true independent investigation. Abu Akleh, a longtime reporter at Al Jazeera, was shot dead by Israeli gunfire last May while covering an Israeli raid in the occupied West Bank.
