58. Yes, Israel has.
But it has always been tied up within the framework of a larger peace agreement. No one expects the Arab states to pay restitution, that isn't a sticking point. Israel wants to make a one time payment to the government of a new Palestinian state as restitution, to be used as they see fit. But that would mean an official abandonment of a Palestinian right of return. Something that the Palestinian leadership is thus far unwilling to consider.

Israel did offer monetary compensation to Palestinian landowners who lost their property, but it came with a catch. That by accepting the restitution they abandon any future claim to the land and any right of return. So, even steven.
