Judge in Hebron shooter’s trial recused

The head of the military court panel trying Elor Azaria, an IDF soldier accused of killing a disarmed and apparently incapacitated Palestinian attacker in Hebron, recuses one of the judges.

Colonel Maya Heller says her decision to remove Lt. Col. Yogev Yifrah from the panel is due to Yifrah’s prior acquaintance with Col. Yariv Ben-Ezra, commander of the IDF’s Hebron Brigade, who is slated to testify at the trial.

The trial will continue as planned after a replacement is named, reports say.
