On May 11, Shireen Abu Akleh covered a new raid by Israeli security forces in the West Bank when she was shot, resulting in her death. On his Twitter account, the head of ALBA-TCP described the events as the "new episode of Tel Aviv’s systematic aggression against Palestine."
“We condemn the murder of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh. This is not an isolated incident: it is part of a policy of colonization, occupation of territories, and systematic violation of international law, perpetrated by Israel against the Palestinian people,” wrote Llorenti on tweeter.
“We condemn this heinous crime (…) and hold the Israeli government and occupation forces responsible for her death,” he said. “We ask the international community to condemn and hold that country accountable for the deliberate murder of our colleague.”
