The name of a soldier accused of manslaughter after he shot and killed a "neutralized" Palestinian assailant in Hebron last month has been released to the press.

Elor Azaria was arrested by Military Police on March 24 following the shooting of a Palestinian assailant after he was already wounded and lying motionless on the ground.

The incident was picked up on a video distributed by B'Tselem, went viral online and has dominated the airwaves with a war of words over the soldier's guilt or innocence pitting Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon and IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, who condemned the soldier, against various politicians on the Right, who say they rushed to judgment.
