The IDF soldier who shot and killed an immobilized terrorist in Hebron "admits to 90% of the case so burden on him to prove self defense," military prosecution said Wednesday in the latest hearing of the ongoing trial of Elor Azaria.

The prosecution charged that Azaria repeatedly changed his accounts of the incidents and that the knife that the Palestinian assailant had used to stab a nearby soldier was not on the terrorist's person, but out of reach.

The hearing marks the latest development in the incident that severely fractured Israeli society and even brought about a political controversy between the former defense minister Moshe Ya'alon and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
