Whatever you think about the verdict, the IDF takes seriously the actions of its soldiers, which smacks the accusations of the anti-Israel media and activists who swear to the contrary. Brian of London adds:
While actions of EVERY Islamic terrorist, sanctioned by Quran, are not to be blamed on Islam. Double standards. That is Jew hatred. 4/4

Elor Azariya found guilty of manslaughter
Military court hands down guilty verdict in case of IDF soldier who shot and killed Arab terrorist last March.
A military court in the Kiryat army complex in Tel Aviv handed down a guilty verdict to Sgt. Elor Azariya Wednesday morning.
Azariya, accused of manslaughter after shooting a wounded terrorist in Hevron on March 24th, 2016, claimed that he opened fire on the terrorist as an act of self-defense, arguing that he feared the terrorist was attempting to detonate an explosive device.
Following the decision by the court, Azariya is expected to be transferred immediately from the court to prison, even before a final sentence is handed down. Azariya will likely receive his sentence in February. He could face up to 20 years in jail.
