An Israeli military prosecutor on Tuesday sought a prison sentence of three to five years for an Israeli soldier who shot dead a wounded Palestinian in the occupied territories as he lay on the ground.

"We believe the appropriate sentence for the accused should not be less than three years and not more than five years," military prosecutor Nadav Weisman said during a court hearing in Tel Aviv.

Elor Azaria, 20, was convicted of manslaughter in a military court on January 4 for the killing of Abdul Fatah al-Sharif in March 2016.
