Former IDF spokeswoman Ruth Yaron will testify May 22 at the final hearing in the civil suit brought upon the State of Israel by the family of Rachel Corrie, who was killed in Rafah in 2003 while protesting the demolition of homes.

Yaron will be joined by Col. Pinchas Zuaretz, former commander of the IDF Southern Brigade.

The Corrie family holds the Israeli government responsible for Rachel Corrie's death. The trial, which began in March 2010, has included more than 20 witnesses, many of whom are miltary personnel.
