EFI mourns Shireen Abu Akleh killed by Israeli forces in West Bank

EuroMed Feminist Initiative (EFI-IFE) expresses its grief and sorrow for the death of the prominent Palestinian journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, when covering an Israeli military raid inside Jenin Refugee Camp.

We deplore the cold-blooded murder of Shireen Abu Akleh by Israeli forces in the exercise of her profession. Shireen was not only a committed journalist giving priority to freedom, justice and equality she was also a feminist. Women always pay a heavy price in conflict zones in clear violation of International Law. Beyond this tragedy we condemn once more solemnly all kinds of violence against women whatever the place and the circumstances.
