An Israeli court has heard its final witness in a trial surrounding the death of American activist Rachel Corrie, who was crushed by an Israeli military bulldozer in the Gaza Strip in 2003.
Israel's commanding officer in Gaza at the time, Colonel Pinhas Zuaretz, testified before the Haifa District Court Sunday.

Corrie, a pro-Palestinian activist who was 23 at the time, was killed when she stood before the bulldozer in an attempt to block it from demolishing a Palestinian home.
The military cleared the soldier who drove the bulldozer, saying he could not see the activist.
That prompted Corrie's parents to file a civil suit against Israel's Defense Ministry in 2005. Her father said Sunday a credible and transparent investigation never happened.
