Israel has finally agreed to pay for the restoration of a British war-graves cemetery in Gaza City, damaged when it launched an operation after the abduction of Corporal Gilad Shalit in June 2006.
A memorial stone, perimeter wall, trees and a number of headstones were damaged in that operation and in a second incident a week later.
Britain issued a formal complaint after the Israelis ignored a letter from its embassy in Tel Aviv. After initially denying responsibility for the damage for months, Israel has now agreed to pay NIS 145,000 (£20,600).
