    Their daughter was buried almost a decade ago. Since that day, Rachel Corrie’s parents have been fighting for someone to take responsibility for their daughter’s death.

    After a more than three-year civil case: an Israeli district court ruled that since Rachel was in a “war zone” Israel is not responsible. It was as the judge stated, a “regrettable accident”.
