Azaria trial resumes

The court-martial of Sgt. Elor Azaria has resumed in Israel. Gili Cohen has this report for Haaretz describing earlier prosecutions. Azaria's lawyers have claimed that he is a victim of selective prosecution. She writes:
"None of these and other such cases that have come before the court in recent years have reverberated like the Azaria case, with intense public debate, rallies and a campaign to raise money for the soldier’s defense and statements by politicians."
