In a surprising move, Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Tuesday decided to grant temporary residency to a Palestinian girl from Gaza, as well as her father and brother after the girl was injured in an IAF strike in 2006.

The child, Maria Iman, was injured when an IAF missile accidentally hit her family's car in an attempt to carry out a targeted assassination.

Her mother, grandmother, and one of her brothers were killed in the incident, and she was transferred to Israel for medical treatment.
