Palestinian Teen Ahed Tamimi (17) Who Struck Israeli Soldier Released from Jail Sunday July 29,2018

Israel released from prison on Sunday July 29,2018 Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi (17) who was jailed late last year after she was filmed kicking and slapping an Israeli soldier in the occupied West Bank.

Ahed Tamimi became a heroine to Palestinians after the December 15 incident outside her home in the village of Nabi Saleh was streamed live on Facebook by her mother and went viral. She was 16 at the time.

Ahed Tamimi faced 12 charges, including aggravated assault, and in March plead guilty to a reduced charge sheet that included assault.

Ahed Tamimi was sentenced to eight months in jail.

An Israel Prison Service spokesman said Ahed Tamimi had left the Sharon prison and was enroute to the West Bank, where her family are veterans of protests against an Israeli settlement near their home.

Palestinians want the West Bank for a future state, along with East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip. Most countries consider Israeli settlements in the West Bank to be illegal, something Israel disputes.
