A 17-year-old girl was detained for eight months for slapping an Israeli soldier.
A young Palestinian Ahed Tamimi, who became world famous after he slapped an Israeli soldier who have used rubber bullets to attack his cousin 14 years, was released at the start of Sunday morning, the Israeli prison where he spent eight months.
Confirmation was given by a spokesman for the Israeli prison service to the Associated Press. Assaf Librati said the 17-year-old girl and her mother were released this morning by the Israeli army into the Palestinian territories.
Ahed Tamimi spent eight months in jail after hitting an Israeli soldier in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh.
She protested against the Israeli occupation and eventually retaliated against the soldier who shot his 14-year-old cousin with rubber bullets.
The moment of the aggression was captured on video and in the images, it is still possible to see Ahed’s cousin, Nour Tamimi, protesting against the violence of the Israeli soldiers.
In December 2017, Israeli soldiers entered the village of Tamimi, who at the time was only 16, and took her. This detention generated a huge wave of indignation among various human rights organizations and the self-determination of the Palestinian people.
Three months later, Ahed Tamimi was sentenced to eight months in prison after being found guilty. He was released from prison this Sunday.

The young woman’s resilience has become a symbol of Palestinian resistance to the Israeli occupation, particularly in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh, which has been occupied by Israel for more than 50 years. Tel Aviv already sees Tamimi’s act as a provocation and as a threat to the work of the Israeli soldiers.
The young Palestinian supporters prepared a great celebration for this Sunday and the young lady was received with much emotion. The village of Nabi Saleh is decorated with Palestinian flags, awaiting the return of the adolescent, who symbolizes resistance to the violent Israeli occupation policy for the Palestinians.
