“We travel like other people, but we return to nowhere … we have a country of words” – Mahmoud Darwish
They began by shooting the militants; then they shot the children throwing stones; and when that was not enough, they began shooting the medics (Razan al-Najjar); and finally they are shooting the journos (Shireen Abu Aqleh). Israeli snipers have shot over 36,000 Palestinians since the march of return began in 2018. With such a savage repressive state it throws into question: will non-violent resistance will be enough in the Palestinian struggle for return?
Shireen Abu Aqleh was assassinated by Israeli occupation forces
This experienced was journalist wearing a blue helmet and vest with ”PRESS” written over it and was murdered by Israeli occupation forces on Wednesday 11 May 2022.
Journalists on the scene explained how Israeli snipers targeted their colleagues. The first three bullets fired at the scene were misses then one hit a male journalist (in the back) then when Shireen shouted that he was hit, she was killed with a bullet beneath the ear.
Our condolences go out to the sisters, brothers, and comrades in the struggle of five million Palestinian people for the right of return to their homeland.
