The Israeli soldier Elor Azria who killed the Palestinian anti-occupation protester Abdul Fatah al-Sharif is likely to be released from an Israeli military prison on Thursday.
According to the Hebrew-speaking Israel Hayom daily, the release decision has seen the day after Azaria served his sentence, which has been cut by a third by an Israeli military parole board.
Azaria is expected to be released ahead of his release date after he submitted an appeal to attend his brother’s wedding on Wednesday.
His family said hundreds are expected to attend a ceremony to be held in the next few days to celebrate Azaria’s release.
Azaria was convicted of manslaughter after he fatally shot the seriously wounded Palestinian youth Abdul Fattah al-Sharif as appears in live footages taken from the murder scene and circulated on social media networks.
