Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the Israeli army Sunday as controversy gripped the country over a soldier caught on video shooting a Palestinian assailant in the head as he lay on the ground.Netanyahu Thursday joined condemnations of the soldier's behaviour but appeared to backpedal slightly Sunday in remarks at the start of a cabinet meeting.It showed a 21-year-old Palestinian, who along with another man had allegedly stabbed a soldier minutes earlier, lying on the ground, apparently after being shot.Several dozen people protested to call for the soldier's release over the weekend, Israeli media reported, while posters were seen calling for military chief of staff Gadi Eisenkot's resignation.Violence since October has left 200 Palestinians and 28 Israelis dead.
