A video by Dan Cohen and David Sheen, with Ronnie Barkan.

Thousands converged on Tel Aviv's city hall on 19 April 2016 to register their support for an Israeli soldier who was filmed executing a Palestinian youth.

On 24 March, Sergeant Elor Azarya, 19, had aimed his rifle and fired at the head of 21-year-old Palestinian Abd al-Fattah al-Sharif as he lay on the ground, wounded and immobile, in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron.

From across the country, Israelis descended upon Rabin Square, Tel Aviv's premier venue for large public protests, to express their indignation over the army's charges of manslaughter against Azarya.

The rally featured speeches by Azarya's mother, father and sister and a number of musical performances by popular Israeli artists.

This film documents some of the rally's most poignant and frightening moments.

Produced with suppport from The Electronic Intifada.
