Israel Extends Detention of Ahed Tamimi and Her Mother

(MEMO) — Israel’s Ofer military court today extended the detention of the Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi and her mother until March 11th.

The judge passed down the ruling in a closed session, in which only a few members of the family were allowed to attend.

On 19 December 2017 Israeli forces arrested the then 16-year-old during a night raid on her house in the occupied West Bank village of Nabi Saleh. A video of Ahed confronting occupation forces who had been stationed on her family’s land had gone viral on social media.

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman vowed to arrest and punish the Palestinian child and all those who appeared with her in the video; her mother and her cousin.

Amnesty International has called on the Israeli authorities to release Ahed, who has been in prison for nearly a month. While an international petition calling for her released has gathered support from Hollywood celebrities, academics and human rights activists.

Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting and finds value in it helps fund it, our future can be much more secure. For as little as $1 and a minute of your time, you can support Anti-Media. Thank you. Click here to support us
