After years of unsuccessfully seeking justice through diplomatic means, Rachel's family filed a civil lawsuit in Israel charging the Israeli Ministries of Defense and State with violating Rachel's constitutional rights to life and dignity as recognized in international law and in Israel's Basic Law.</p>
