An Israeli former paramilitary policeman was jailed for nine months Wednesday for killing a teenage Palestinian protester in 2014, prompting protests from the youngster's family who demanded a tougher sentence.Manslaughter, by contrast, carries a maximum 20-year sentence as that charge can apply to deliberate killings where there is no clear evidence of premeditation.The court handed Deri a nine-month jail term, an additional six-month suspended sentence and ordered Deri to pay the amount of 50,000 shekels ($14,000) in damages to Nuwara's family.An Israeli soldier, Elor Azaria, is due to be released from prison next month after serving two-thirds of a 14-month sentence for manslaughter over his killing of a wounded and incapacitated Palestinian assailant, Abdel-Fatah al-Sharif, in the West Bank in 2016 .
