More witnesses to take stand in Hebron shooter saga

August 30, 2016 09:59

The trial of IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria, who shot a downed Palestinian terrorist in Hebron in March, continued on Tuesday with the testimonies of addition soldiers who were at the scene of the incident.

Hebron resident Ashi Horowitz, who was present at the scene, will be the first to take the witness stand. Horowitz has previously said that emergency first responders at the scene has warned against approaching the subdued terrorist as he might have an explosive and that "he could detonate on all of us."

The issue of whether the terrorist who had stabbed soldiers at a checkpoint before he was shot and wounded and later killed by Azaria remains a centrally-debated matter in the trial.
