The murder of Yazouri came shortly after the assassination of Al-Jazeera journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, whom the Israeli occupation forces shot in the head with an explosive bullet.
Institute of Forensic Medicine at An Najah National University reported that the autopsy revealed that Shireen was wearing a helmet on her head and the bullet was of the exploding type.
Furthermore, Israeli occupation special forces arrived at the family home of martyr Shireen Abu Akleh in occupied Al-Quds.

Simultaneously, the crowd in Shireen Abu Akleh's family home demanded the expulsion of the occupation forces from the martyr's house.
The Israeli occupation aggressed against Jenin refugee camp, North West Bank, at a time when journalists covered the storming of the camp.
The Israeli attacks on journalists were not limited to one victim: Palestinian journalist Ali Samoudi was also wounded by a live bullet in his back; his condition is stable.
Palestinian media reported heavy gunfire between resistance fighters and the occupation forces in the Jenin refugee camp, noting that many journalists were wounded by Israeli bullets while covering the occupation's incursion into the Jenin refugee camp.

Last week, "Israel" arrested 15 Palestinian journalists on the occasion of World Press Freedom Day, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Club.
In a statement, the PPC said that the Israeli Occupation Forces continue to harass Palestinian journalists through a plethora of systematic abusive policies, most notably through detention. Since the start of this year, the occupation has continued to arrest journalists and activists and has assaulted many of them, causing injuries, especially amid the escalation that began in April.
