PALESTINE SOLIDARITY NETWORK

NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION

FREE AHED AND ALL PALESTINIAN CHILDREN FROM ISRAELI PRISONS NOW!

The Tamimi family live at Nabi Saleh, in the Israeli militarily-occupied West Bank.
Ahed Tamimi ‘s 14 (or 15 I’m not sure) year old cousin was shot in the face at close range by Israeli soldiers who then barged into Ahed’s family property. She tried to stop them and was filmed slapping an IDF soldier. She was arrested later in a night raid . All this happened in mid December. Since then she has been held in detention. She has received a rape threat ..threats of spending the rest of her life in an Israeli prison. Ahed will turn 17 on 31 January. Her mother is under arrest too by the way.
Several hundred Palestinian children are in Israeli prisons. You can find out more from the Defence of Children International report No Way to Treat a Child and from samidoun.net
