Elor Azaria, a soldier who stood trial for shooting a terrorist after the terrorist was already incapacitated, came to protest today at the court where five soldiers will soon stand trial for the alleged abuse of two Palestinian suspects.
Azaria said that the soldiers "shouldn't be afraid. What happened there, only they know. No one is judging them. Everyone has been in their shoes." Azaria said the soldiers should "be strong. All of the great and dear nation of Israel is behind you."
Five soldiers from the Netzach Yehuda battalion will stand trial for allegedly abusing two Palestinians. The two Palestinians were arrested after terror attacks in the West Bank. Two soldiers from the Netzach Yehuda battalion were killed in the attacks.
