Jerusalem:

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said today it was “likely” that Palestinian gunfire killed Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Aqleh in the occupied West Bank, a death the network blamed on Israeli troops.

“According to the information we’ve gathered, it appears likely that armed Palestinians — who were indiscriminately firing at the time — were responsible for the unfortunate death of the journalist,” Bennett said in a statement.
