Video captures the moments after Shireen Abu Akleh was shot.

Video broadcast by Al Jazeera, Shireen Abu Akleh’s employer, captures the sound of gunfire and yelling as Ms. Abu Akleh and her colleagues came under fire while covering an Israeli army raid on the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday.

The footage does not show the moment when Ms. Abu Akleh was shot, but after audible gunfire in the first few seconds, a man can be heard yelling: “Ambulance! Ambulance!”

The filmer moves closer, and Ms. Abu Akleh is seen lying motionless face down as a man and another journalist, identified by the network as Shatha Hanaysha, try to reach Ms. Abu Akleh but are forced back by gunfire.

In the footage, both women are wearing protective vests marked “Press” and helmets.

Another Al Jazeera journalist in the group, Ali Samoudi, was also shot in the back. From the hospital, he said that they were clearly identified as journalists before the attack. “We were obvious,” he said.

Crowds gathered in multiple cities in the West Bank on Wednesday to mourn and protest Ms. Abu Akleh’s killing. A funeral procession was held on Thursday.
