HR Prompts Media to Add Missing Ahed Tamimi Info

HR Prompts Media to Add Missing Ahed Tamimi Info

Tamimi was arrested in December after video surfaced of her kicking the soldiers outside her West Bank home.

Tamimi's sentence in the agreement includes time served and a fine of 5,000 shekels ($1,430, 1,166 euros), said her lawyer Gaby Lasky, meaning she is to be released in the summer.

When her trial began in February, she faced 12 charges, including aggravated assault, however, 8 were dropped as part of the plea deal.

Amnesty said in an emailed statement after Tamimi's conviction that her sentence was at odds with worldwide law saying imprisonment of a minor must be used only as a last resort for the shortest appropriate period of time.

When asked why she accepted the plea deal, Lasky said that "when they chose to keep her trial behind closed doors, we knew that we were not going to get a fair trial", reported the BBC.

Ahed Tamimi, who comes from a family of prominent activists, has been involved in a series of previous incidents, with older pictures of her confronting soldiers widely published. Her mother was arrested on the same day for streaming the incident live on Facebook, and therefore charged with incitement. The Tamimi family of Nabi Saleh is well known internationally for their activism against the Israeli occupation, which maintains a heavy, near-constant presence in their village.

Eshteiwi stated that the Palestinians will continue to protest the ongoing illegal Israeli occupation, its colonies and Annexation Wall, and will fight for their legitimate rights, until liberation and independence, and establishing a sovereign Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. Her mother, Nariman, and cousin, Nur, also signed plea deals. Various media reports claimed the assailant was a Turkish national, but Israel's Shin Bet domestic security service told AFP he was a Palestinian from the West Bank. Ahed Tamimi has become a household name and an icon of Palestinian resistance. She was denied bail earlier this year, and will receive credit for the time she was detained during the closed-door trial. "There is no justice under the occupation", she said, according to a news release from the campaign organized to free her. Tamimi, handcuffed and shackled, shouted out to reporters in court in the Ofer military prison, near the West Bank city of Ramallah.

The unnamed supporter of Tamimi, who was identified by police only as a resident of central Israel in her 40s, was immediately arrested and was set to be brought Thursday before the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court.

Israeli Deputy Prime Minister Michael Oren told NPR's Daniel Estrin that "for an Israeli audience to see again and again photos of our [service member] children being beaten up and not have the army react in any way was very, very hard for the society". The Israeli military confirmed the details of the deal.
