Palestinian protest icon Tamimi released from Israeli prison

Italian street artist Jorit Agoch paints giant mural of 17-year-old jailed Palestinian girl Ahed Tamimi

Tamimi, 17, became a heroine to Palestinians previous year following the incident outside her home in the village of Nabi Saleh.

"The occupation is doomed to end and [Israeli] detention will not break our will", the 17-year-old teenager added.

Her mother filmed the incident and posted it on Facebook, where it went viral and, for many, instantly turned Ahed into a symbol of resistance to Israel's half-century-old military rule over the Palestinians.

Israeli authorities on Saturday also arrested two Italians and a Palestinian for painting Tamimi's now-familiar image on the Israeli separation wall cutting off the occupied West Bank.

Some Israelis say Tamimi has always been exploited by her family, who they accuse of using her to try to provoke Israeli soldiers on film.

"They are drawing a mural for Ahed Tamimi in order to tell the world and the occupation that we are partners in this case and that the Palestinian national resistance is the only way to face the arrogant occupation". Baseem, a prominent activist promoting boycotting of Israel, said his family is seeking "to continue normal life" and has stopped the weekly anti-occupation protests in Nabi Saleh where confrontations with Israeli soldiers are common. He said she initially hoped to attend a West Bank university but has also received scholarship offers overseas.

Trump calls Chinese trade practices ‘vicious’
The administration has slapped tariffs on $34 billion in Chinese goods and China retaliated with duties on soybeans and pork. But the fact remains Trump still has a 25 percent tariff on European steel and a 10 percent tariff on European aluminum.

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas has praised her and social media has been flooded with support. Her eight-month sentence was the result of a plea deal.

Lasky added that the interrogator in question threatened to arrest Tamimi's relatives and interrogate them too, if she continued to remain silent during questioning.

Tamimi was arrested in the early hours of December 19, four days after the incident. "This is a huge relief for Ahed Tamimi's loved ones, but their joy will be tempered by the injustice of her imprisonment and the grim knowledge that many more Palestinian children still languish in Israeli jails, many despite not having committed any recognisable crime".

The statement said the three, who were masked, "illegally drew on the wall, and when border policemen took action to arrest them, they tried to escape in their auto, which was stopped by the forces".

The teen's cousin Nour was also indicted for her involvement in the quarrel, but she was released in January.

The scuffle took place amid clashes and protests against US President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
