17 year-old Ahed Tamimi was freed from Israeli prison after serving an 8 month sentence for slapping an Israeli soldier. Tamimi became well known due to a video that was released of her standing up to the soldier. On Dec. 15, just before the incident, the same soldier had severely wounded Ahed Tamimi’s cousin by shooting him in the head. Palestinians celebrated their young activist July 29, the day she was released.
