Ahed Tamimi's Trial To Be Continued Behind Closed Doors

UN rights experts alarmed by detention of Palestinian girl
But Ahed Tamimi's supporters see a fearless girl who struck two armed soldiers outside her West Bank home in frustration after having just learned that Israeli troops seriously wounded a 15-year-old cousin, shooting him in the head from close range with a rubber bullet during nearby stone-throwing clashes.
Lasky also pointed out that multiple court hearings relating to Tamimi had already been held that included a massive media and diplomatic presence, as well as that a video of Tamimi, which is the main subject of the trial, already went viral on social media.
The actress who plays the DC Comics heroine is Gal Gadot, a former Israeli soldier.
"In the meantime, I have a lot of Palestinian friends and I was getting quite disturbed as they told me her village was under attack".
The 17-year-old arrived at court on Tuesday appearing calm, smiling and flashing the "V for victory" sign at photographers.
"It's my effort to raise awareness that they can't simply kill this girl".
For Palestinians, Ms Tamimi has become a "David and Goliath" style figure challenging the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land, a representative of the estimated 300 Palestinian children held in Israeli jails.
Bassem said Ahed's next appearance was set for 11 March, while Ahed's mother Nariman and cousin Nour will be brought before the military tribunal on 6 March.
Senior Israeli government officials called for a harsh punishment. Since 2009, residents there have staged regular anti-occupation protests that often ended with stone-throwing clashes. He later had a section of his skull removed and is recovering at home.
In a seven-page indictment, Tamimi faces 12 charges, including aggravated assault, threatening Israeli soldiers and incitement to violence on Facebook, going back to April 2016. He said the occupation has robbed her of a normal childhood, that it's better for her to confront it than to fear it, and that he believes her generation will lead Palestinians to freedom.
"While our struggles may be unique, the parallels can not be ignored", they add, noting that U.S. police, border patrol and other law enforcement "train with Israeli soldiers, police, and border agents, utilizing similar repressive profiling tactics to target and harass our communities". She could face several months or years in jail if convicted.
Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and a White House they see as favoring Israel more than ever, has fueled frustration among Palestinians. "Its main objective is to curb any attempt of resistance and enhance the control over the population". Meanwhile, Nariman Tamimi has been detained five times by Israeli forces for protest action. Such conduct is prohibited by worldwide law. "This is a court of occupation, and Ahed was resisting occupation". "That's exactly what Tamimi is accused of doing, by using force against soldiers".
The Tamimi case has struck a nerve internationally.
Global human rights groups have criticized the full-throttle prosecution of a minor.
Bassem Tamimi told journalists after the adjournment that "having people attend the court - journalists, consuls, diplomats, observers and lawyers - is very important because it keeps them safe and makes us feel that those in court are safe".
