(ANSA) - ROME, JULY 04 - Al Jazeera journalist ShireenAbu Akleh was probably hit by Israeli positions but there is no reason to believe that her killing was intentional: the US State Department states, explaining that it cannot come to a "definitive conclusion" on the origin of the bullet that hit it on 11 May and that was delivered to Washington by the Palestinian Authority.
"The army investigation has made it clear that it cannot be established who is responsible for the painful death of the reporter," said interim prime minister Yair Lapid adding: "but it can certainly be established that there was no intention of hitting her."
"Israel - she added - will express regret for her death.
Thus the Palestinian Attorney General Akram al-Khatib defined the conclusions of the investigation.
"We are surprised - he said, quoted by Wafa - by these statements.
The technical data in our possession indicate that the conditions of the bullet are valid for the combination with the firearm", which he fired.
"We are incredulous": this is how the reporter's family commented on the results of the investigation.
In an open letter they state that "Shireen was murdered" and claim that numerous testimonies confirm that "the fatal shot was fired by an Israeli soldier".
They complain that the investigation was not "transparent", and its outcome, they write, "is an insult to his memory '" "We will continue to ask for justice. We will appeal to the UN and the International Criminal Court to take action immediately. they assure - it doesn't end like this "(ANSA).
