ISRAEL – 16 year old Ahed Tamimi was arrested by Israeli forces and faces up to 10 years imprisonment for slapping a soldier.
The violent occupation of Palestine by Israeli forces has been an issue since the state’s conception, and this arrest has been adding to the uproar from those calling it unjust.
Ahed refused entry by Israeli forces into her home and continued to fight entry. Ahed isn’t the only family member arrested for protesting. Her mother was also arrested.
