Israeli right-wing activists launched campaigns to support the Israeli soldier who executed a Palestinian youth in al-Khalil city last Thursday. The execution process was filmed by the Palestinian human rights activist Imad Abu Shamsiya.
Posters slamming the investigation with the soldier, who murdered the Palestinian Abdulfattah al-Sharif in Tel al-Rumaidah district, were hanged on street walls.
Israeli right-wing members called for halting the trial against the soldier and asked the government along with the Israelis to support him.
Members of Israeli Knesset along with Israeli ministers rushed to express their support for the soldier while electronic campaigns were also launched on social media websites demanding his immediate release. more
