An Israeli court ordered the state to pay some $250,000 to a Palestinian seriously wounded in 1984 in the explosion of ammunition left behind from an Israeli army training exercise. The court ruled the army had not properly combed the area after the drill, and that evidence from the incident had not been saved.
