Charlie Azaria, the father of the soldier accused of killing a neutralized terrorist, is still receiving treatment at Sheba Medical Center at Tel HaShomer after he had a stroke over a month ago.

Azaria believes without a doubt that there is a connection between his son's trial and his deteriorating health. “For 5 months, I've been fighting the media and the legal system and that is an enormous amount of pressure," said Azaria. “I am struggling daily with my life. Today I feel like I am fighting for my son and family.”

"You don't need to be an experienced investigator to see that the authorities are trying to frame my son,” added Azaria. “I want to yell because I see the injustice but I don't know at whom to yell. I demand the establishment of an investigation committee and the investigation of this trial's conduct."

"Elor is a child,” Azaria said. “He seems strong but he is broken inside. I want to address the Prime Minister and the Chief of Staff, stop this disgrace."
