In 1973, Israeli jets shot down Libyan Arab Airlines Flight 114, which strayed into Sinai peninsula, then under Israeli occupation. This caused the death of 108 of 113 people on board. According to Wikipedia, Israel paid compensation to the victims' families. I've been trying to find out how much compensation was paid to each family.

According to an article that published in "Haaretz" daily newspaper(January 2003) The Israeli government paid 30,000 USD to families of victims, and 10,000 - 30,000 to survivors who injured.

As described, the Israeli government announced it will pay as a good will even though that the responsibility and the fault in this case was on the Libyan aircraft captain.

Few words about "Haaretz": "Haaretz" known as a left-wing daily newspaper
