International headlines of Azaria trial omit mention of Palestinian terrorist

Mainstream media outlets emphasize that Sgt. Elor Azaria shot dead a 'wounded Palestinian,' while failing to mention the latter's stabbing attack that preceded the shooting; at most, terrorist is described as 'a suspect.'

A verdict reached on Wednesday morning convicting IDF soldier Sgt. Elor Azaria of manslaughter after shooting dead a seriously wounded terrorist who carried out a stabbing attack just moments earlier in Hebron last year, has made headlines the world over. 

 

 

While most of the headlines in international mainstream media outlets referenced the fact that Azaria had indeed been found guilty of manslaughter, many omitted any mention whatsoever of the fact that the Palestinian had gone on a stabbing spree just moments earlier.

CNN and Sky News, for example, referred to the killing of a "wounded Palestinian suspect" while the BBC spoke merely of the "Hebron death."
