The Israeli soldier who killed incapacitated Palestinian assailant sentenced to 18 months in jail.

The decision to court-martial Sergeant Elor Azaria, who shot the Palestinian after the assailant stabbed another Israeli soldier last March, stirred public controversy in Israel from the start, with right-wing politicians calling after the verdict on President Reuven Rivlin to pardon the 20-year-old defendant.

However, the soldier is to spend 18 months behind bars and this seem to be the final decision of the court.
