Ammon News - The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) for Arab States on Thursday called for the protection of all civilians during hostilities or conflicts, particularly complete and unconditional neutralization for females and vulnerable people.

UNFPA Arab States Regional Director Luay Shabaneh stressed that the assassination of Shireen Abu Aqla, a Palestinian journalist and Al-Jazeera correspondent in Palestine, while carrying out her civic activities as a journalist and reporter, is further evidence of the dangers threatening Palestinian civilians, especially women and girls.

The journalist lost her life while covering the events in Jenin camp at Wednesday dawn, he noted.

"Ghada Sabateen - a widow and mother of 6 children in her forties - was shot dead last month at the eastern entrance of Husan village in Bethlehem governorate, and in the village of Faqqua, Jenin district, Hanan Khadour - a high school student - also died after being shot," he said.

He called for ensuring that all measures are taken and all guarantees are provided to protect civilians, especially women and girls.
