Al Jazeera has condemned the attack by Israeli forces on the funeral procession of the network’s slain journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.

The veteran Al Jazeera journalist was killed by Israeli forces on Wednesday while on assignment covering an Israeli incursion in the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank.

Ahead of the burial on Friday, thousands had gathered to participate in a funeral march which Israeli forces would not allow. In shocking footage aired live on Al Jazeera, Israeli forces beat mourners, including those carrying Abu Akleh’s body, almost causing them to drop the coffin.
