The Jerusalem District Court ordered the state on Sunday to pay over NIS 1.5 million in compensation to the family of Abir Aramin, a ten-year-old Palestinian girl killed by a rubber bullet in 2007.

Abir was killed outside her school in the West Bank town of Anata, northeast of Jerusalem, as Border Police dispersed a riot nearby.

According to a pathologist’s report published by Abir’s family, with assistance from the B’Tselem human rights group, the girl was killed by a rubber bullet shot into her head, although border police claimed she had been killed by a stone.

In a ruling in the Jerusalem District Court in August 2010, it was decided that there was no dispute that Abir's death had been due to "state negligence."
