DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. January 4, 2017, 10:37 AM (IDT)
A court at IDF headquarters on Wednesday morning started issuing its verdict on the case of Sgt. Elor Azaria, charged with manslaughter over the fatal shooting of a subdued terrorist in Hebron. The court's chief judge, Col. Maya Heller, said that the shot by the accused to the head of the injured terrorist was the cause of death. She rejected all the defense claims regarding the cause of death and said Azaria was aware of his action.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
