    On October 12, 2018, Rabi, from Biddya, was driving with her husband and a daughter near the Tapuah Junction when they came under a stoning attack. Her husband and daughter were injured.
    An Israeli minor has been indicted for manslaughter.
    As reported earlier this year in Ynet's sister publication Yedioth Ahronoth, the Defense Ministry recognized the attack as an act of terror but since Al-Rabi was not an Israeli citizen and the killing occurred outside Israel's recognized borders her family was offered no compensation. They appealed the decision and demanded over NIS 7million.

    The ministry offered to settle the dispute with the payment of NIS 670,000 but lawyers for the family said they would reject the offer and pursue the matter through the courts.
    Officials in the Defense Ministry said the sum offered to Al-Rabi's family is consistent with compensation that would have been forthcoming had she been a citizen of Israel.
