Al Jazeera Journalist Killed

Famed Palestinian journalist for Al Jazeera, Shireen Abu Akleh, was killed covering an IDF operation in Palestinian town of Jenin. While the autopsy came back “inconclusive”, Israel is already being blamed for her death. There is no clear evidence that she was killed by an Israeli bullet in the shootout between the IDF and Palestinians during the operation. The Palestinian Authority is refusing to do a joint ballistics test with Israel in order to determine the source of the bullet. Israel is in negotiations with the PA to also examine the bullet that killed Abu Akleh. Rioting has taken place and is adding fire to an already tense situation. Please continue to pray for this tense situation, that logic will rule over emotion and that a conclusive answer can be reached. Please also pray for the family of the slain journalist as they mourn her death. Lastly, please pray for wisdom for Israeli officials as they determine their next steps in this situation.
