It's disgraceful Elor Azaria should have to be in prison for killing a terrorist

The former IDF soldier Azaria's been put in prison for slaying an jihadist:
Former IDF soldier Elor Azaria on Wednesday entered the military prison where he will be serving his 18 month sentence for killing an incapacitated Palestinian terrorist. His imprisonment has been the center of widescale debate in Israel over military ethics.

Azaria was found guilty of manslaughter by a military court in January for killing Palestinian attacker Abdel Fatah al-Sharif in Hebron on March 24, 2016. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison, 12 months’ suspended sentence after serving that term and demoted to private in February. He has since been discharged from the army.

A crowd of supporters saw Azaria off from his home in the city of Ramla. He was taken to the base in the center of the country, where the prison is located, in a car decorated with Israeli flags and plastered with stickers expressing support for him. His parents, his girlfriend and his lawyer Yoram Sheftel.

Speakiing to reporters, Sheftelsaid it was "a sad day for the IDF and a majority of Israel."

A crowd of dozens of people were also waiting for him at the entrance to the base.

[...] By law Eisenkot will only be able to discuss Azaria’s request for clemency after September 7, when the verdict becomes final and cannot be appealed.

On Sunday, Sheftel asked to hold a hearing on delaying his sentence and entry to prison for three weeks, until the chief of staff decided whether to commute it.
He most definitely should receive a pardon, because given this was a savage they were dealing with, it's atrocious they'd railroad him in the first place. The terrorist wasn't as incapacitated as thought, according to some reports, tried to strike, and that's why Azaria shot him. A serious case of injustice.
