An Israeli soldier convicted of manslaughter for shooting dead a wounded Palestinian attacker has been released from prison.
Elor Azaria arrived home on Tuesday after serving two-thirds of his 14-month sentence. He was greeted by supporters and banners welcoming his release. A parole board had granted him early release earlier this year.
Azaria began serving an 18-month sentence in August after he was convicted of manslaughter. Israel’s military chief later reduced the sentence by four months.
Azaria, a combat medic, was caught on video shooting a wounded Palestinian attacker.
