To be released to house arrest

Azaria, who was convicted in January and sentenced in February, has been confined to the closed Nachshonim military base since being arrested in March 2016.

Attorney Yoram Sehftel with the appeal of Elor Azaria's sentence.

In March 2016, Azaria, a combat medic stationed in Hebron, shot a neutralized terrorist in the head as he lay wounded on the ground after committing a stabbing attack against the soldier's colleagues. It also led to strong statements across the Israeli political spectrum, with some politicians, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, calling for him to be pardoned, while others decried the fact that Azaria was prosecuted on a charge of manslaughter rather than murder. "The trial of your life!" yelled Hebron shooter defense lawyer Sheftel in anger at Weissman as the two engaged in legal jousting. 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.

Since, beginning on July 20, Azaria will no longer be a conscripted soldier, on Monday the prosecution and defense gathered again in the military appellate court in the IDF's Tel Aviv headquarters to present their view of what should be done with the soldier. Azaria claimed he was afraid he could still be a danger or may have had a bomb attached. It is now assumed that the prosecution will acquiesce to his being sent home for house arrest for the time being.

Azaria will be allowed to leave his parents' home in Ramle only to attend synagogue prayers and accompanied by his parents.
