NIS 1.5 M to Family of Rubber-Bullet Fatality

Judge Orit Eph'al ruled, on Sunday that the state must compensate the family of Abir Aramin of the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Anata 1.5 million shekels for her death at the age of 10 from a rubber bullet fired by security forces.

The case grew out of a clash between Arab students and Border Guards in the neighborhood in 2007.
