The cross examination in the trail of IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria, who is charged with manslaughter in the March killing of a Palestinian terrorist, opened on Monday morning in the Jaffa Military Court.

When questioned on stand by IDF prosecutor Nadav Weissman whether three IDF commanders who testified against Azaria were liars, Azaria sated that his IDF major was "100 percent a liar" and his Lt.-col. had partially lied and partially forgot the details of the March incident. Azaria refrained however from saying any lower ranking soldier had lied in their accounts.

Trial proceedings adjourned early on Sunday after Azaria felt unwell.
