Appalling scenes in Jerusalem at the funeral of Shireen Abu Akleh. As one post says, “a picture says a thousand words.”
Aerial view of Shireen Abu Aklehâ€™s funeral procession in occupied Jerusalem. What a sight. Truly at a loss for words. Despite the full force of the Israeli police, they could not suppress or deter the people.

Today was my hardest reporting day yet. I was in Jenin & my friend; young, beautiful & inspiring was being buried in Jerusalem. To say that I believe Shireen is gone, Iâ€™d be lying. But the truth is she is.
Heavy. Heavy. Heavy. https://t.co/GBQUP1sCmpâ€” Fatima AbdulKarim (@FatiabdulFatima) May 13, 2022
