Elor Azaria Guilty

The Israeli soldier Elor Azaria is guilty of manslaughter.

The verdict by a military court came in early this morning.

The terrorist stabbed two IDF soldiers before being neutralised.

Azaria cocked his weapon and shot the wounded terrorist in the head at point blank range.

The Minister of Defence Avigdor Lieberman notably has not come out in support of a pardon.
