Israel will pay £280,000 to the Palestinian peace activist Bassem Aramim for the death of his 10-year-old daughter Abir four years ago, during a Border Police operation in the village of Anata.

The family argued that Abir, whose case The Independent highlighted, was shot with a rubber bullet as she walked home from school. The family brought a civil case after police closed an internal investigation without charges.
