President Mahmood Abbas Praises Ahed Tamimi

Ramallah(July 30, 2018): Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday called Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi “a model for the Palestinian struggle,” as he met with her shortly after she was released from Israeli prison.

Tamimi, 17, who was jailed for more than seven months after she was filmed slapping and kicking a soldier, was set free earlier in the day, returning to celebrations in her hometown of Nabi Saleh in the central West Bank. 

“The Palestinian girl Ahed Tamimi is a model for the Palestinian struggle for freedom, independence and the establishment of our independent Palestinian state,” Abbas said, according to the official PA news agency Wafa.
