After killing of Reuters videographer, Israel’s UN envoy: We will investigate

Israel’s UN envoy Gilad Erdan said that Israel would investigate what happened in southern Lebanon following the killing of a videographer from Reuters.

“Obviously, we would never want to hit or kill or shoot any journalist that is doing its job. But you know, we’re in a state of war, things might happen.”

“We regret them. We feel sorry. And we will investigate it. Right now, it’s too early to call what happened there,” he added.

A missile was fired while covering the Israeli shelling in Alma al-Shaab in the southern district of Tyre and it struck a vehicle, killing Issam Abdallah and wounding five others.

Media sources revealed that the journalists were covering the shelling but from a high point and were wearing press vests, but the Israeli forces targeted their vehicle with direct and intentional artillery shelling.
