Israeli Minister Slams Police For Attacking Journalist's Funeral

On Friday, Israeli police attacked Palestinian mourners carrying Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh's casket.

Israeli Minister for Regional Cooperation, Esawi Frej, on Saturday criticized the Israeli police for attacking the funeral of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh in occupied East Jerusalem, saying they acted in a disgraceful way.
Frej, who is also an Arab lawmaker in the Knesset (Israel's parliament) tweeted that the police had "desecrated" Shireen Abu Akleh's memory, adding they "showed zero respect for the mourners" and produced "a needless flare-up."
The minister said he couldn't understand the fear of Israeli police from the Palestinian flags during the funeral, saying he sits with Palestinian ministers where Israeli and Palestinian flags are on the table.
The UN, the EU and dozens of officials and diplomats worldwide, including US congress members, condemned the Israeli suppression of Palestinian mourners participating in the journalist's funeral.
On Friday, Israeli police surrounded mourners and used stun grenades and batons to assault pallbearers carrying Abu Akleh's casket as it was being carried out of the French hospital in East Jerusalem's Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.
Abu Akleh, a veteran 51 year-old journalist, was covering an Israeli military raid near the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank when she was shot dead on Wednesday. Palestinian officials and her employer, Al Jazeera, say she was murdered by Israeli forces.
