Closing arguments in Azaria case

“I have found no precedent for sanctioning the shooting of someone who has already been shot,” said [prosecutor Nadav] Weissman. “I have found no precedent for any court in Israel or in the world to sanction firing to the head without need. The accused is asking to establish a new precedent, a new law - the Azariya law. I ask your honors to establish that the accused has lied, has changed his version of events, and has falsely accused IDF officers.”
