Ahed Tamimi will stay in jail until end of trial

They then move backwards after Ahed Tamimi's mother Nariman becomes involved. The indictment covers six incidents in recent months in which she was involved in altercations with Israeli soldiers, including the December 15 incident that was captured on video and went viral on social media.

On Monday, a major from the IDF Prosecution had countered to the Judea Military Court that Tamimi has "a pattern of lawbreaking" which required that she remain in detention until the end of her trial for shoving soldiers and rock-throwing.

The Ofer Military Court judge argued that security forces treated the Palestinian teenager "leniently over a long period of time".

2018), a military judge approved the prosecution's request to remand 'Ahed and Nariman Tamimi in custody.

"Ahed Tamimi is a child of 16 years of age and she is imprisoned along with hundreds and hundreds of other children in Palestine".

An adult found guilty of assaulting a soldier could be jailed for up to 10 years, but such an outcome would be unlikely for a minor.

Critics also highlight Ahed's trial taking place in a juvenile military court, which they say does not protect the rights of minors or guarantee a fair trial.

"The court said that because she is so risky there is no possibility of bail", her lawyer Gaby Lasky told reporters. "I could not keep quiet and I responded as I did", the 16-year-old testified.

Members of a Haitian community gathered in West Palm Beach to protest the president and recent comments he's accused of making. The State Department is expecting more diplomats to be called in this week, Goldstein said .

Amnesty International slammed Israel's prolonged detention of Ahed Tamimi, the Palestinian girl who was filmed slapping Israeli soldiers in the Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh last month.

The video shows that the soldiers, who were standing on the edge of the family's walled front yard armed with assault rifles, were able to lightly swat away Ahed's slaps and kicks.

The video brought polarized reactions, with much of the Israeli camp expressing outrage that she and her cousin were not arrested on the spot, and much of the Palestinian camp cheering her aggressive resistance of what they view as Israeli occupation.

"This should show you how Israel views Palestinians", said Barghouti.

Tamimi has been accorded heroic status in the Palestinian media, with help from such left-wing news outlets as Haaretz, depicting her as a fearless freedom fighter.

Senior Israeli politicians have called for prosecutors to be tough and make an example of the girl.

The B'Tselem rights group issued a similar condemnation on Wednesday, claiming that Israel "military justice system is not a tool for justice, but rather a central mechanism of repression in the service of Israeli control of Palestinians in the territories". "The Israeli authorities must release her without delay", said Magdalena Mughrabi, Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa at Amnesty International.

Tamimi s lawyer Gaby Lasky argued in court that her continued detention violates global conventions since she is a minor.
