'Resistance continues', says Palestinian teen released from Israel jail

'Resistance continues', says Palestinian teen released from Israel jail

Much of the global community considers Tamimi's grounds for arrest a grossly unfair case.

Ahed Tamimi, the Palestinian girl jailed for slapping an Israeli soldier and an icon of resistance against Israel's occupation of the West Bank, was released on Sunday after eight months.

Ahed and her mother, Nariman Tamimi, were greeted with banners, cheers and Palestinian flags as they entered their home village of Nabi Saleh. Her eight-month sentence was the result of a plea deal.

Video of the incident outside her home in Nabi Saleh a year ago went viral.

A defiant al-Tamimi thanked all supporters who stood by her and her family during her detention.

Following her release, the red-haired teenager told dozens of well-wishers: "From this martyr's house, I say resistance is continuing until the occupation is removed". Which means that she will probably be at it again soon - at least as long as she hasn't hit age 18.

Palestinian "hero" Tamimi, 17, and her mother Nariman were driven early on Sunday from the Sharon prison inside Israel to a checkpoint leading to the occupied West Bank, where the Tamimi family live, prison spokesman Assaf Librati said. Her mother was arrested after posting the video on social media. She was 16 at the time.

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

From the Rantis checkpoint, Tamimi headed to the tomb of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in Ramallah, where she laid some flowers. Thirteen days later, she was charged with alleged assault, incitement, and throwing stones at Israeli military soldiers.

"All the female prisoners are steadfast". Most countries consider Israeli settlements in the West Bank to be illegal, something Israel disputes. Her sentence drew widespread condemnation from global rights groups including Amnesty worldwide.

They took her into custody on December 19.

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.

According to Palestinian figures, roughly 6,500 Palestinians - including an estimated 350 minors - are now languishing in Israeli prisons.

Palestinians are increasingly disillusioned about efforts to establish a state in those territories, after more than two decades of failed negotiations with Israel.

"We have seen from the interrogation videos, from how she behaves in court, that she is incredibly confident and resilient".
