Israel has expanded the severe measures in its playbook–all aimed at erasing, disenfranchising and dehumanising Palestinians.
New witness evidence and video footage clearly show that Shireen and her colleagues were directly fired at by the Israeli forces, Al Jazeera's submission highlighted.
Shireen Abu Akleh's family and colleagues told UN investigators that she had been deliberately targeted as part of Israel's "wide-scale war" on Palestinian media workers, and called for accountability and justice.
Defence Minister Benny Gantz said that Israel will not cooperate with US authorities as it has provided details of the investigation to American officials.
Israel's designation last year of seven Palestinian civil society groups as "terrorist" bodies, followed by closure orders and raids on their offices, sparked widespread international outrage.
Following investigations, Israeli army says there is "high possibility" that Shireen Abu Akleh was killed by "wrong fire" from its soldiers shooting at Palestinians during a military raid in occupied West Bank.
At least 53 Palestinians have been killed since late March, mostly in the occupied West Bank including Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh who was covering an Israeli raid in Jenin.
Representative Andre Carson said he was also planning a broader bill that would require the US government to investigate any killing of US journalists overseas.
The family said it was calling for the United States to launch its own "thorough, credible independent and transparent investigation" into Abu Akleh's murder.
The US president said "the goal of the two states seems so far away" but re-emphasised his support for Palestinian statehood.
US State Department says ballistic experts determined bullet was badly damaged, which prevented 'clear conclusion'.
A US forensics team has returned to Palestinian authorities the bullet that killed Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, with results still to be determined.
