Al Jazeera has taken the Shireen Abu Akhle case to the International Criminal Court; Against the United States

Washington: Al Jazeera has turned to the International Criminal Court in the case of Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh (Shireen Abu Akleh) shot dead by the Israeli army.

Al Jazeera Media Network has applied to the court asking for action against those responsible for the murder. But the United States has also come forward expressing opposition to Al Jazeera’s move.

In a report released on Tuesday, Al Jazeera asked the International Criminal Court in The Hague to investigate and prosecute those responsible for Akhle’s murder. But just hours after filing this request with the court, the US State Department denied Al Jazeera’s motion.

“In this case, we oppose this move. We stand by our longstanding objections to the ICC’s investigation into the Palestinian situation.

ICC should focus on its core mission. “That mission is to act as a last resort in the prevention and prosecution of heinous crimes,” US State Department spokesman Ned Price said when asked by reporters about Al Jazeera’s move.

The United States has long opposed Palestinian efforts to take Israeli abuses to international organizations, including the United Nations and the International Criminal Court.

Meanwhile, Al Jazeera has petitioned the International Criminal Court along with the evidence. Al Jazeera’s six-month-long investigation, including eyewitness evidence and video footage, was filed with the petition.

Meanwhile, Israel previously confirmed that the United States had announced an investigation into Abu Akhle’s death. But Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz has responded that the government will not cooperate with the US investigation.

Gantz, who described the US-led investigation as a “mistake,” also released details of a secret Israeli government Justice Department investigation into Akhleh’s death.

The Israeli minister also said they will not allow others (US) to interfere in their internal investigations.

Shireen Abu Akhle was killed on 11 May. Al Jazeera reporter Abu Akhlaq was shot dead while covering a military operation and raid by Israeli forces on a refugee camp in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin.

The Palestinian Ministry of Health said the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head.

Shireen was killed by the military while filming Israeli raids on Jenin. Another journalist, Ali Samoudi, was also killed.
