Shireen Abu Akleh, an American citizen and a reporter for Al Jazeera, was shot and killed by an Israeli sniper while covering an Israeli attack on the occupied West Bank town of Jenin early Wednesday.

In a statement, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said:

“We strongly condemn the assassination of Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, and we call on President Biden to do the same.

"Throughout this year, the Israeli apartheid government has been launching increasingly violent attacks on reporters, worshipers, paramedics and protesters. Israeli forces also have a long history of targeting journalists, even bombing the Gaza headquarters of the Associated Press and Al-Jazeera last year. Our nation's muted reaction has emboldened this violence.

"Enough is enough. These war crimes must end, and President Biden is the only world leader with the influence to end them. President Biden should immediately call for a complete end to Israeli attacks on Palestinian territory and direct the FBI to launch an independent investigation into Shireen Abu Akleh’s murder."
