France: Protesters demand release of Palestinian teen Ahed Tamini

More than a hundred protesters marched through the streets of Paris on Thursday evening, to demand the release of Palestinian activist Ahed Tamini and her family by Israel. Speaking at the protest, Palestinian lawyer Khaled Shouli criticised Israel’s treatment of the case. “The Israeli occupation state uses these children to achieve their ends and we must stand in solidarity with the... Еще Palestinians”, he said. The 16-year-old Ahed was filmed slapping an Israeli soldier in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh. The video of the incident subsequently went viral. Earlier this week, Ahed was charged with assaulting security forces, incitement and throwing stones. Ahed’s mother Nariman Tamimi has also been charged with incitement and assault. The case has polarised opinion on both sides of the Israel-Palestine conflict. Ahed’s defiance of the so-called “occupation” led many Palestinian sympathisers to compare her to Malala Yousafzai or Joan of Arc. The Israeli side has requested a tough sentence from the judge, accusing the teenager of a long history of provocation.
