Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Tuesday clarified his position on the conviction of IDF soldier Sgt. Elor Azaria, who was indicted for manslaughter last week in a military trial that has stirred controversy countrywide.

Taking to social media, Liberman posted a statement on his Facebook page: “Anyone who has the best interests of Elor Azari at heart should now sit still and must stop making noise, they must stop making a commotion,” he wrote. 

“We all remember that on the one hand you have an outstanding soldier and on the other hand there was the  terrorist who came to kill Jews. We are doing everything to keep the values ​​of the IDF and of Azaria. Everything else - it’s just causing more damage.”
