The father of the Palestinian stabber shot dead by Azaria while lying wounded on the floor predicts the soldier could get a life sentence.
“For me, a just verdict will be one that is similar to the verdicts our sons (in Israeli prisons) get,” Yusri al-Sharif, the father of the Palestinian, tells reporters in the West Bank city of Hebron, where the shooting occurred.
“Life sentence … But Israel is trying its own son, so there is a possibility it will be lenient.”
The maximum sentence for manslaughter in Israel is 20 years.
