Eight months in an Israeli prison has strengthened Ahed Tamimi’s resolve. The 17-year-old activist was convicted of assault for hitting an Israeli soldier who was standing guard outside her home. Her imprisonment garnered international attention and highlighted more than 300 other cases of Palestinian children who had been arrested and detained by Israeli authorities.
She walks out of prison determined to study international law so that she might one day represent Palestine. The teenager says she is proud she could ‘deliver the message of Palestine to the whole world’
