IDF soldier convicted in high-profile case is paroled

The New York Times reports here on the parole of ex-Sgt. Elor Azaria, a medic, who was convicted in one of Israel's highest-profile and most contentious courts-martial. The lede:
An Israeli soldier who fatally shot a Palestinian assailant who was already severely wounded and lying on the ground was released on Tuesday after serving nine months in prison, closing a case that polarized Israelis and thrust the military, a revered institution in Israel, into the heart of an anguished public debate.
