Clashes broke out Wednesday among demonstrators outside of the Kiriya military court in Tel Aviv as the nation awaited a verdict in the divisive case of IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria who shot a subdued Palestinian assailant last year in Hebron.

A few hundred people gathered for the rally with supporters shouting chants of "Free Azaria!"Far-right activists Benzi Gopstein, Baruch Marzel and rapper the Shadow were among Azaria's supporters.



"How can a terrorist be considered a victim and a soldier be considered a murderer? Only in Israel," Azaria supporter Idal told The Jerusalem Post.
