Israeli court rejects appeal over U.S. activist's death

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/13/2015 - 20:43
The family of Rachel Corrie, an American activist killed by an Israeli army bulldozer while protesting with Palestinians in 2003, has accused Israel of shielding its military from blame after the Supreme Court dismissed an appeal over her death. In a ruling on Thursday, Israel's highest court upheld a 2012 decision by a lower court that cleared the military of responsibility for her death, saying the incident happened during wartime and was a "regrettable accident". "We have come to see through this experience how deeply all of Israel's institutions are implicated in the impunity enjoyed by the Israeli military," the family said in a statement issued on their web site, http://rachelcorriefoundation.org. "The Supreme Court decision ignores international law arguments regarding the protection of civilians and human rights defenders in armed conflict and grossly violates the internationally recognized right to effective remedy." Corrie's family first brought a case in 2005, accusing Israel of intentionally and unlawfully killing their 23-year-old daughter.
