החגיגה האחרונה לפני הכניסה לכלא

Former IDF Sgt. Elor Azariya on Tuesday evening took part in a birthday celebration for his mother, a day before he enters jail to begin serving his 18-month prison sentence.

Azariya, convicted of manslaughter for shooting a wounded terrorist following a stabbing attack last year, sought to delay his prison term following his appeal to IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot for leniency in his sentence.

On Tuesday, however, the military appeals court rejected Azariya’s appeal, and as such he will enter prison on Wednesday.
