Israel Starts Process to Revoke Citizenship of Arab Terror Suspect

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

Arab terror suspect Ala’a Ziwad may lose his Israeli status in the wake of a recent decision to revoke or not renew the residency of anyone who harms the security of Israelis or the state.

Ziwad is charged with four counts of attempted murder and possession of a knife for racist purposes after having carried out a vehicle ramming attack at the Gan Shmuel junction near Hadera last October.

The terrorist has confessed to deliberately ramming his car into two IDF soldiers and then stabbing two more people before he was stopped.

A 19-year-old female soldier and a 20-year-old male soldier were evacuated to the hospital in serious and fair condition respectively. The attacker also stabbed a 14-year-old girl and a 25-year-old man, left with serious and minor wounds.

Interior Minister Arye Deri said Sunday on his Facebook page he would not renew Ziwad’s father’s residency permit. He also said he would file a request with the Haifa District Court to start the process of revoking Ziwad’s citizenship: the terrorist’s mother is an Israeli citizen.

IDF Hebron Soldier Pleads ‘Not Guilty’ to Manslaughter in Terrorist Death

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

The attorneys for IDF Sgt. Elor Azariya submitted a plea of “not guilty” Monday on the charge of manslaughter for shooting to death a wounded terrorist in Hebron.

The case revolves around a March 24 stabbing attack on an IDF soldier by two Arab terrorists. One was shot and killed immediately. The second, Fatah a-Sharif, was shot and disabled, but did not die immediately. Instead, he lay on the ground, wearing a bulky, zipped up jacket that appeared to hide a possible explosives vest. Because he was still moving it was unclear whether or not he presented a current threat.

Attorneys Ilan Katz, Eyal Beserglick, Binyamin Malcha and Karmit Scheiber listed a number of points in the Jaffa Military Court in their rebuttal to the indictment against their client.

“The defendant acted in a fraction of a second to neutralize the terrorist to prevent an attack on himself and his friends who were standing close to the terrorist. He did not see any other way to save their lives or his own. The defendant admits that the gun fire may have killed the terrorist but that it definitely neutralized him,” the attorneys responded in their plea.

“The defendant saw a situation in which, given the circumstances, the terrorist was wearing an explosive belt and carrying a knife as part of a combined attack and his movements indicated that he intended to detonate the belt on his body which could have had serious consequences,” the plea continued. This was said to the defendant “during a briefing – he thought that a real and immediate danger was being posed to him and his friends,” the attorneys went on, Ynet reported.

The terrorist had already been shot in the lung and the groin. The attorneys said the autopsy report did not rule out the question of whether his death might have been caused by those shots, given the amount of time that elapsed between those first shots and the shot to the head by Azariya.

1 Judge Out in Manslaughter Trial of IDF Soldier

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

One of the judges has been recused in the manslaughter trial of an IDF soldier who shot and killed an injured Arab terrorist in Hebron.

Lt. Col. Yogev Yifrah, one of a panel of three judges in the military court, was removed due to his prior acquaintance with a witness who is slated to testify in the case, according to Walla!

Sgt. Elor Azaria is accused of killing the terrorist after he was already on the ground and disabled moments after he and a second terrorist had stabbed an IDF soldier in Hebron.

The trial is scheduled to continue as soon as Yifrah is replaced with another judge, by the president of the Jaffa Military Court, Col. Maya Heller.
