 A court hearing will be held next Thursday to listen to the testimonies of witnesses in the death of American activist Rachel Corrie, who was killed in cold blood by an Israeli bulldozer driver in Rafah in 2003.

The Israeli court decided to hear the testimonies of the driver of the bulldozer that killed Corrie and the military commander responsible for the unit on the ground that day as Rachel Corrie’s family attends.

Corrie’s family filed a civil suit against state of Israel on charges of unlawful killing.

The court in a previous hearing decided to allow the soldiers involved in the incident to testify behind  a screen to protect their identities.

The Corrie family’s lawyers appealed the decision to the Israeli Supreme Court, demanding that the family be allowed to see the soldiers at minimum, but the court refused to hear the appeal.

Based on the decision, the bulldozer driver will testify behind a screen, but the military commander on the ground that day, Captain R.S., had already given a televised interview in 2003, and was thus already known to the public.

Judge Oded Gershon decided that the commander would testify in plain view, but his name will remain redacted on official court records.
