Hebron shooter Elor Azaria's request for a late start to his 18-month prison sentence has been rejected by the Military Court of Appeals.

Azaria had requested a delayed entrance to prison on the condition that he was waiting for a response from IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot about a request for a commuted sentence. That decision has yet to be given, so Azaria will enter prison on August 9 to begin his sentence.
