Elor Azaria Likely to Be Temporarily Released to House Arrest

Elor Azaria

Azaria is appealing his conviction and military prosecutors are appealing his 18-month jail sentence for being too lenient.

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.

Lt. Col. Nadav Weissman, military prosecutor in the trial against IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria, speaks to press at the Kirya military base in Tel Aviv following the verdict of Azaria on January 4, 2017.

Today, the military court will decide whether Elor Azaria, who has been found guilty for shooting and killing a neutralized and unarmed Palestinian terrorist, will be released to await the court hearing under house arrest or remain under military arrest. 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.

The Lakers' No. 2 overall pick said he will receive treatment leading up to Monday night's championship game against Portland. Here's a look at his BBB shoes in the Lakers colorway Ball wore in one of the first summer league games.

Hebron shooter Elor Azaria is expected to receive an order for temporary release to full house arrest from an IDF court on Monday. Azaria claimed he was afraid he could still be a danger or may have had a bomb attached.

Arab terrorists have often been seen to rise from injuries that appear to be mortal, only to pull a trigger or wield a knife and wound or kill again. Azaria will not be able to leave the home at any other time.

The defense, led by Yoram Sheftel, argued that Azaria did not pose a threat and should therefore be given a partial house arrest, which would only require him to stay at home in the evening.
