Following Israel’s military offensive into Gaza in 2009, known as Operation Cast Lead, the families of hundreds of Palestinians killed in the assault began a long legal process seeking recognition and compensation. Recently, two Israeli court decisions offered mixed results. In the case of one family who lost 22 members, the court said that the deaths were unintended results of the “mistakes of war,” and that Israel is not responsible. But another Israeli court approved a settlement that compensates a different Gaza family for two members killed during a humanitarian break in the fighting. FSRN's Rami Almeghari has more.
