"Israel receives more American military aid than every other country in the world combined."
(Rosa Brooks, 5 February 2017)
Ahed Tamimi Ahed Tamimi is a 17 year-old Palestinian activist from Nabi Saleh. She is the daughter of Bassem and Nariman Tamimi, both long-term non-violent activists against Israeli oppression. On 19 December 2017, Ahed was filmed confronting soldiers who had invaded her village, and had shot her 15 year-old cousin (Muhammed Fadel Tamimi). That same night soldiers invaded and ransacked her house, stole computers and mobile devices, and kidnapped Ahed. The following day, Nariman was also imprisoned when she came to check the status of her daughter. Her crime: uploading the video of Ahed confronting the soldiers onto Facebook.

Number of days arbitrarily imprisoned during her latest ordeal:

Percentage of Ahed Tamimi’s life in prison: 1.7%

Number of birthdays in prison: 1
