Media banned at Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi's trial
Date created :
17-year-old Ahed Tamimi's military trial began today in a highly politicised case where the Palestinian girl is charged with provoking and intimidating Israeli soldiers. She has been in prison for over a month and has become a poster child for the Palestinian cause, with many Israelis arguing she was manipulated by her entourage. Amnesty International and other NGOs are calling for the teenager to be released in line with the Geneva Convention on the Rights of the Child.
