Palestinian teen activist Ahed Tamimi released by Israel

Palestinian teen activist Ahed Tamimi released by Israel”

Her arrest drew global attention.

Tamimi, 17, and her mother were indicted by an Israeli military court late previous year after a video of the youth kicking and slapping two armed Israeli soldiers outside her home went viral on Facebook.

Tamimi was documented along with her cousin Nur as the two kicked and slapped the company commander and his soldier in the village of Nabi Saleh in southern Samaria.

But the December video went viral and turned her into a symbol of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Ahmed Odeh: "Today, as the Palestinians prepare both nationally and officially for the release of the heroic child Ahed Tamimi, we are surprised by those free people who came from all over the world to paint the photo of the icon of the Palestinian people and the icon of the national resistance on this apartheid wall".

"I have been longing for this moment because I missed them a lot", Tamimi's father Bassem told German news agency DPA ahead of her release on Thursday. Which means that she will probably be at it again soon - at least as long as she hasn't hit age 18.

Ahed Tamimi, 17, became a heroine to Palestinians after the incident last December outside her home in Nabi Saleh, a village which has campaigned for years against land seizures by Israel, leading to confrontations with Israel's military and Jewish settlers. According to some accounts, 20 Israeli army Jeeps arrived at Ahed's house before dawn to arrest her.

In Nabi Saleh, supporters welcomed Ahed home with Palestinian flags planted on the roof of her home.

There had been slight tension at the checkpoint before Tamimi's arrival as a few men with Israeli flags approached supporters holding Palestinian flags. Thirteen days later, she was charged with alleged assault, incitement, and throwing stones at Israeli military soldiers. Her arrest also drew more attention to Israel's detention of Palestinian minors.

"I thank everyone who supported me in this sentence and supports all the prisoners". Her case has trained a spotlight on the detention of Palestinian minors by Israel, a practice that has been criticized by worldwide rights groups.

On Saturday, Israeli border police arrested two Italians and a Palestinian "on suspicion of damaging and vandalising the security fence in the Bethlehem area", a statement said.

Israel captured and occupied the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem in the 1967 war with Jordan, Egypt and Syria. "Lack of deterrence leads to the reality we see now. we must change that".
