Ynetnews reports: The IDF recently paid a compensation of 200,000 euros to the family of the Spanish UNIFIL soldier who was killed as a result of IDF shelling towards Lebanon, the Spanish newspaper El Pais reported.

The shelling that resulted in Francisco Toledo’s death was retaliation for Hezbollah’s anti-tank fire that killed IDF Major Yochai Kalangel and Staff Sergeant Dor Nini.

The Foreign Ministry confirmed on Monday that contact was made on both sides and that Israel has reached an agreement with the Spanish Ministry of Defense. However the Foreign Ministry refrained from addressing details or the amount of compensation that was paid.
