The trial of Sergeant Elor Azaria, the Kfir Brigade soldier who shot dead an already-neutralized terrorist in Chevron on Purim, began this morning at Yaffo Military Court, with the accused being read his indictment.
“The soldier took several steps towards the terrorists, aimed at his head and fired a single bullet from short range. The defendant did this in contravention of the rules of engagement and without justification,” the indictment said, according to a Ynet report.
Azaria was charged with manslaughter and inappropriate conduct last month.
