Elor Azaria Gets Four Months Off His Sentence


Israel’s chief of staff has reduced the prison sentence of a soldier convicted of fatally shooting terrorist last year.

Elor Azaria began an 18-month prison term in August after he was found guilty of manslaughter in a case that sharply divided the country, where military service is mandatory.

Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot said in a letter published Wednesday that he was reducing Azaria’s sentence by four months, citing “mercy considerations,” but would not grant a pardon because the soldier “didn’t accept responsibility” for his actions. Read more here.



  1. General Eisenkot, I’m ashamed of you.
    Elor should be freed and even celebrated for preventing the piece of dirt from doing more trouble.

  2. Elor acted righteously and well within the bounds of halacha.
    Who knows how many future lives he saved by killing a potential murderer?
    Please daven for the speedy and smooth release of Elor ben Oshra.
