Hundreds of Israelis demonstrated around the country Saturday night supporting an IDF medic who killed a wounded IDF terrorist who had stabbed a soldier a few minutes prior.
The medic, a soldier from the Kefir Brigade, is being charged with manslaughter. The prosecutor decided against charging him with murder.
Relatives of active IDF soldiers, reservists and civilians gathered in numerous cities to support the detained soldier.
In Rishon LeZion, 400 people blocked a major artery “for our hero who took out the Hebron terrorist.” A second rally was held at a shopping mall in the Tel Aviv suburb of Bat Yam. Another demonstration was held at the entrance to Kiryat Gat, in southern Israel.Hana Levi Julian
