IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria, 20, was convicted in a Tel Aviv military court on Wednesday of manslaughter for the shooting last year of a subdued Palestinian assailant in the West Bank city of Hebron.

The verdict in the case came after the March 2016 shooting of the terrorist Abdel Fatah al-Sharif, who had attempted to stab an IDF soldier, was captured on film sparking a divisive nation-wide debate.
