The Biden administration called for accountability in the shooting death of Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, one day after it determined she had likely been killed by gunfire from an IDF position in Jenin on May 11th.

“We do want to see accountability. We would want to see accountability in any case of wrongful death, that would especially and is especially the case in the wrongful death of an American citizen as was Shireen Abu Akleh,” US State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters in Washington on Tuesday.

“Our goal and the collective goal of the parties is to see to it that something akin to this, the killing of a journalist in a conflict zone, must not happen again. “The IDF as a professional military outfit is in a position or soon will be in a position to consider steps to safeguard non-combatants,” Price said.
