Senior Officers Testifying Against Elor Azariya Backed By IDF Chief


idfA number of high-ranking officers testified against IDF soldier Elor Azariya, the soldier facing manslaughter charges for shooting and killing a wounded terrorist in Hebron on Purim. The testimony of the top brass came in support of Major Tom Neeman, the Elor’s company commander who testified for the prosecution and then came under attack.

IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-General Gadi Eizenkott spoke out in support of Neeman following the criticism and attacks against him, as did Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Education Minister Naftali Bennett. Former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon also spoke out against the threats leveled against Neeman for testifying against Azariya.

  1. Most officers in the IDF are leftist retards. They want to impress the “world” instead of standing by one of their own who killed a TERRORIST because he thought he had a bomb under his thick jacket. Shame on these officers.

  2. The Zionist dream: fight for us.

    The Zionist dream new version: fight for us and we will take great delight in tearing you apart limb by limb and feeding the pieces to the dogs in front of the media.

    Satmar is right.
