The Palestinian resistance icon and her family were planning to take part in some events in Europe.
Ahed Tamimi and Dareen Tatour are equally heroic Palestinians, and both have an important message for the world. But only one of these voices does not get the recognition it deserves.
The 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi, who has become an icon of Palestinian resistance, was released along with her mother from Israeli prison on Sunday after an eight-month detention for slapping an Israeli soldier.
Ahed Tamimi, 17, jailed by Israel for slapping and kicking its troops in the occupied West Bank is to walk free on Sunday after eight months behind bars.
As many as 400 minors are in Israeli custody facing harsh prison sentences for crimes like 'stone-throwing' or being in Israel illegally. The Israeli practice of punishing minors and their families compounds the intractable nature of the conflict.
Ahed Tamimi's sentence in the deal includes time served and a fine of $1,430, says her lawyer Gaby Lasky. She was arrested after a viral video showed her slap two Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank.
The judge in the trial ordered journalists removed from the courtroom, ruling that open proceedings would not be in the interest of 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi, who is being tried as a minor.
The protesters marked Ahed Tamimi's 17th birthday and her upcoming military trial in Israel, saying she was only protecting her family and her land. Pro-Israelis also at the protest said Tamimi's arrest was justified.
Sixteen-year-old Ahed Tamimi, who has been detained after a video showing her slapping Israeli soldiers went viral, will appear in court on February 6. Officials say it was postponed at the request of her lawyer.
An Israeli military court ordered that Ahed Tamimi, 16, who is hailed as a hero by Palestinians after a video of her slapping two Israeli soldiers went viral in December, to be held in custody throughout her trial.
The 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi has been hailed as a hero by Palestinians who see her as bravely standing up to Israel's occupation of the West Bank while Israelis accuse her family of using her as a pawn in staged provocations.
EU calls on Israeli authorities to "respond proportionately to protests, and open investigations following fatalities in particular when involving a minor".
