I'm heartbroken by Shireen Abu Akleh's tragic death. A swift, thorough, objective probe and accountability into her death and her producer's injuries is needed. My condolences to her loved ones. Journalists must work without fear of violence. Press freedoms are vital.
I want to extend my condolences to the family, community and coworkers of Al Jazeera journalist, and Palestinian American, Shireen Abu Akleh. The death of any journalist in the line of duty is a tragedy. 🧵
I join the Administration in condemning Abu Akleh’s killing and call for a full and complete investigation of her death, and holding to account those responsible. This can only be achieved with cooperation between Palestinian and Israeli authorities.
I was also disturbed by the scenes at her funeral, including video of people throwing objects at the procession and of police brutally assaulting mourners.
Israel must investigate the events surrounding the funeral, including the actions of its police officers, and take corrective action to prevent such situations in the future.
I continue to pray for peace between Israelis and Palestinians, as well as all people throughout the region. I remain committed to seeking pathways, such as the historic Abraham Accords, to promote coexistence, mutual respect and shared prosperity.
This is indefensible. We need a full, transparent, and independent investigation into the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh and these disturbing attacks by Israeli police on mourners. Those responsible for these actions must be held accountable.

The killing of Palestinian-American journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh is a horrific tragedy. There must be an independent investigation to hold those responsible accountable.
Journalists bravely cover war, expose corruption, and hold the powerful to account. We must defend the right of journalists to safely report the news around the world.
No one should be attacked while mourning. There’s no excuse.
This is a prime example of the inhumane treatment of Palestinians living under occupation.
We need a full and independent investigation of Shireen Abu Allen’s murder and this abhorrent violence by the Israeli police.
Shireen Abu Akleh 🙏🏿

Once again I extend my deepest condolences to her family and all those mourning her loss.
