Ya'alon Pledges to Help Pay for al-Dura Lawsuit

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Strategic Affairs Moshe Ya'alon congratulated Dr. Yehuda David on his successful court hearing in the Mohamed al-Dura / Jamal al- Dura slander trial in France. "I congratulate the Israeli physician, Dr. Yehuda David, on his victory in the libel appeal in France, against Jamal al- Dura," Ya'alon said. "This is an important victory not only for Dr. David, but also the state of Israel... and an industry which aims to blacken the face of the State of Israel." 

Ya'alon proposed that Israel assist Dr. David in his legal expenses in fighting the lawsuit. Al-Dura sued Dr. David for telling a French radio station that he had lied about being wounded by IDF gunfire.
