The military on Saturday prevented an attempted attack by a group of settlers against an Arab photographer who documented the killing of a suspected Palestinian terrorist by an IDF soldier, Arab media reported.

IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria was found guilty of manslaughter earlier this week following the conclusion of a contentious months long military trial that divided Israeli public opinion.

Azaria was convicted after the prosecution proved that he had unlawfully killed an immobilized Palestinian assailant following an attack on an IDF soldier stationed in Hebron. 

The episode was caught after a local man captured the event on video and submitted it to the left-wing NGO B'Tselem.
