Since his IDF service has ended and he can no longer be detained at an army base, the court decided to put him on house arrest at his parents' home in Ramla until a ruling is made on both of the appeals on July 30.
Brig. Gen. Orly Markman, the head of the military court, determined Azaria will be on a full house arrest and be allowed out only to attend prayers at the synagogue with his family.
The IDF allowed Azaria to return his military equipment on Wednesday so he could leave the Nahshonim Base, where he has been held in open detention since the shooting in March 2016, as early as possible. This was likely done to avoid media coverage of his release, and indeed he left the base at 6am.
He was greeted home with signs saying "Elor Azaria was born to freedom" and balloons wishing him good luck.
