Family of Corrie, who was crushed by an IDF bulldozer during a pro-Palestinian protest in Gaza in 2003, filed lawsuit in Haifa accusing Israel of intentionally killing their 23-year-old daughter.
An Israeli court rejected on Tuesday accusations of negligence over the 2003 killing of American activist Rachel Corrie, who was crushed by an Israeli army bulldozer during a pro-Palestinian demonstration in the Gaza Strip.
Corrie’s family filed the lawsuit in the northern Israeli city of Haifa in 2005, accusing Israel of intentionally and unlawfully killing their 23-year-old daughter and failing to conduct a full and credible investigation.
In a lengthy ruling read out to the court, the judge said the state was not responsible for any «damages caused» as they had occurred during what he termed war-time actions. He called Corrie’s death a «regrettable accident».
