IDF Soldier Elor Azaria Ends Mandatory Service, Released to House Arrest

Israeli soldier convicted in shooting moved to house arrest
Elor Azaria, the IDF soldier convicted of manslaughter for the shooting death of a wounded Arab terrorist a year ago, is expected to be released tomorrow to his parents' home under house arrest for the first time since he was detained, until his appeals are sorted out, Israeli media reported Sunday.
Prosecutor Nadav Weisman opposed the demands and requested full house arrest with constricting conditions like in the military base.
His defence team appealed both the manslaughter conviction and the 18-month jail sentence as being too harsh. He will remain there except for trips to the synagogue, accompanied by a family member, on Friday night and Shabbat day. However, the Israeli military prosecution submitted an appeal to increase the sentence.
The two sides failed to reach a mediation deal, forcing the court to rule on the appeals.
Azaria, a medic in the elite Kfir Brigade, came on the scene following a Palestinian stabbing attack on soldiers in Hebron in the West Bank on March 24, 2016. Minutes later, while Sharif was lying on the ground, Azaria shot him in the head in a shooting that was captured on video by a local resident for the Israeli human rights NGO B'Tselem.
Azaria was arrested the same day and indicted almost a month later.
Israel's top generals pushed for prosecution, saying Azaria violated the military's code of ethics, while large segments of the public, including politicians on Israel's nationalist right, sided with the soldier. The attacker was immediately shot by other soldiers in the area and by the time Azaria got there and shot him again, was already incapacitated, but was still moving.
