Ramallah, MINA – An Israeli court in Ofer town on Tuesday extended imprisonment of the female Palestinian activist Ahed Al-Tamimi till March 11, KUNA reported.

Palestinian journalists who attended beginning of the court hearing today said the presiding judge decided to prosecute Ahed in a closed-door session, thus they were ordered out of the courtroom before Ahed was brought in.

Israel detained Ahed in December after she appeared in a videotape hitting an Israeli soldier, breaking into her house.

International human rights organizations have slammed Israel for holding the young girl, who was active in anti-occupation demonstrations in her village, Nabi Saleh, west of Ramallah.

She has been accused of violence incitement — among other charges.

The Israelis detained her mother, Nariman, the next day after Ahed’s detention, when the woman went to an Israeli security detention station to inquire about her. (T/RS5/RS1)
