Trial of Hebron shooter opens, IDF says soldier not telling truth

Jpost Reports –

Surrounded by continued national and media attention, the trial of Elor Azaria, the soldier charged with manslaughter for shooting Abdel Fatal al-Sharif in Hebron on March 24 after he had attacked security forces but was then neutralized, opened on Monday at the Jaffa Military Court.

IDF Lt. Col. (res.) Nadav Weissman, who has been specially brought in from his normal civilian job at one of the country’s top trial lawyers, responded afterward saying, “As you know, from our perspective this case deals with an unusually grave issue. We are talking about firing which had no justifiable operational basis at a terrorist who was already neutralized, against all of the rules of engagement.”
“We are dealing with a case in which the accused changed stories which, in our opinion, are not credible, and the evidence process this. Because, in our opinion, he is not trustworthy, we filed the indictment.”
****
If I recall earlier Jpost reports (3.31.2016), Azaria said to a fellow soldier when he shot al-Sharif, “He stabbed my friend…. He deserved to die!” Here, the terrorist was neutralized (hors de combat – out of the fight) and should have been given aid according to the Fourth Geneva Convention Section I, Article 3.
On the other side of the street, Azaria claims he did not know if al-Sharif had an explosive belt on and thought he might detonate ….
