After serving a nine-month sentence for killing an incapacitated terrorist in Hebron, Elor Azaria visited the city for the first time since his release on Tuesday.
He was seen with the area’s Jewish residents, taking selfies with local youth.
Azaria was released from prison in May, five months before his 14-month sentence ended. He was convicted of manslaughter for killing Palestinian terrorist Abdel Fatah al-Sharif on March 24, 2016.
He was originally sentenced to 18 months and was demoted to the rank of private in February.
In November, President Reuven Rivlin rejected his request to commute the remainder of his sentence.
Videos of the incident, which went viral and brought widespread international condemnation, show Azaria shooting the incapacitated terrorist while the latter was lying on the ground – although Azaria claimed his shots were in self-defense as he feared a knife attack or concealed explosive vest.
