Israeli soldier convicted in shooting moved to house arrest

Elor Azaria, the Israeli soldier convicted of manslaughter for shooting a downed Palestinian terrorist, will be released to house arrest.

He was immediately released from his base holding cell to house arrest, until the appeal of his case is ended.

A iDF military court is expected to rule on his conviction and sentence at the end of July. His imprisonment has been postponed pending his appeal.

He said he feared Sharif was wearing an explosive belt and could blow himself up, a claim judges rejected.

His conviction has deeply divided Israeli public opinion between those who believe he was wrongly tried and those who say the conviction was the right and proper effect of his actions.

A number of Israeli politicians have called for him to be pardoned, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
