Attorney Yoram Sheftel spoke with journalists upon entering the Military Court of Appeals at the Kirya in Tel Aviv, and claimed that confirming killing was standard IDF operating procedure.

Sheftel read journalists an e-mail message he said he received this morning, describing confirming the death of a terrorist at the end of a 2002 attack.

"That was the standard procedure," Sheftel quoted from the email which describes the event in detail, and presented a photograph that ostensibly documents the incident that was published in a newspaper.

"Elor Azariya's trial is a sin, and the military court of appeals will have an opportunity to redress the injustice that was committed. Elor's response was more moderate.He is a victim," Sheftel said.

שפטל: וידוא הריגה היה הנוהל המקובל
