 PA on journalist's death investigation: everyone except Israel can participate

The Palestinian Authority believes that any international organization, but not Israel, can participate in the investigation into the death of the Al-Jazeera journalist. This statement was made by the head of civil affairs of the PA Hussein al-Sheikh. “We welcome the participation of all international bodies in the investigation into the murder of Shirin Abu Akle, who have contacted the specialized Palestinian prosecutor's office, which published its initial report yesterday,” — he said Al-Sheikh added that the scenes of violence at Abu Akle's funeral “strengthened the confidence of PA officials” that there should be no joint investigation with Israel. “What happened at the funeral yesterday confirms our position that Israel is not involved in this investigation,” — noted Al-Sheikh. The day before, Ramallah announced that “Israel is definitely guilty” of the journalist's death.
