State of Palestine: Dozens celebrate detained Ahed Tamimi's 17th birthday in Hebron

Dozens of people gathered in the West Bank city of Hebron on Tuesday to celebrate the 17th birthday of imprisoned Palestinian activist Ahed al-Tamimi, which is on January 31. The celebration of Tamimi's birthday was held in the neighbourhood of Ghaith near the Tomb of the Patriarchs. During the celebration, people brought out a cake featuring Tamimi's face. Israeli troops were seen securing the... Еще area during the celebration. Hebron Governorate Representative Amin Al-Ja'bari, who attended the celebration, said that «it's a beautiful message, which proves that the Palestinian people love life, and the Palestinian people want to live in their land with dignity and freedom.» Tamimi, a daughter of two Palestinian activists, was charged with assault, incitement and throwing stones at security forces during West Bank protests in December 2017. A video of her allegedly slapping an Israeli soldier surfaced online and she was subsequently arrested for the action on December 19. The Palestinian teenager has become a symbol of Palestinian resistance against Israel since her arrest, with her story being told around the world. Tamimi is set to appear in military court on February 6.
