Rachel Corrie's mother Cindy said she was deeply saddened by the Haifa District Court's verdict, delivered less than two hours earlier on Tuesday, which cleared the state of responsibility in the death of her daughter, who was killed by an IDF bulldozer in Gaza in 2003.

"From the beginning it was clear that there is a system to protect soldiers and provide them with impunity at the cost of civilians," she told reporters outside the court. "Now we now that the protection for soldiers extends to the court."

Saying that US diplomacy and the Israeli court system failed her family, Cindy Corrie added that there was never a credible investigation into her daughter's death.

However, she continued, "At least we have had access to a court system, which most Palestinians are denied."
