In addition, the court will answer the IDF prosecutor's appeal that demanded a heavier sentence. He appealed his sentence through his attorney Yoram Sheftel, who claimed that other soldiers who operated in a similar manner didn't receive a similar punishment.
Lt. Col. Nadav Weissman, military prosecutor in the trial against IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria, speaks to press at the Kirya military base in Tel Aviv following the verdict of Azaria on January 4, 2017. However the court ordered him into full house arrest with the only exception allowing him to leave the house to attend Sabbath prayer services with his parents.
Elor Azaria, the IDF soldier also commonly referred to as "The Hebron shooter" who was convicted of shooting and killing an injured terrorist who stabbed another soldier on March 24, 2016.

In either case, I hear the producers are confident that all 10 episodes of Shooter will be delivered on time to air as scheduled. He tweeted his leg needed "surgical attention", but will make a full recovery.
The development does not mean that Azaria will be free from his 18-month prison sentence, which is still pending a decision by the IDF Military Court of Appeals.
In March 2016, Azaria, a combat medic stationed in Hebron, shot a neutralized terrorist in the head as he lay wounded on the ground after committing a stabbing attack against the soldier's colleagues. His lawyer argued that terrorists have often risen from injuries that appear to be mortal, only to shoot or stab again.
A military court will rule on the appeals by the end of the month, according to reports. He will remain there except for trips to the synagogue, accompanied by a family member, on Friday night and Shabbat day.
