Elor Azaria, a former Israeli soldier who was jailed for nine months in 2016 for shooting an unarmed Palestinian, is looking to publish a book describing his experiences.
Entitled “One Shot: From Light to Dark,” the autobiography is set to retell his story from the day he killed Abdel Fattah al-Sharif in Chevron on March 24th, 2016, after he carried out a stabbing attack against an IDF checkpoint. Jailed for 18 months, Azaria sentence was reduced to 14 and then 9 months. He was let out in May 2018, with no regrets.
The book is set to make the case that Azaria was a victim, who believed he shot al-Sharif rightfully because he had a suicide vest on.
The crowdfunding campaign is aiming to raise 150,000 shekel, around $35,000. 800 shekel can get you a copy of the book, as well as a tour for two of the shooting scene in Chevron, led Charlie Azaria – Elor’s father, a retired police investigator.
