Israel grants bail to Palestinian woman in ‘slap video’ case

  RAMALLAH: Israel on Friday released a Palestinian woman on bail after she was charged with assaulting an Israeli soldier in the occupied West Bank following a viral video of the incident.
Nour Tamimi, 20, was released early on Friday from a military prison after a court rejected the prosecution’s appeal against her release, her father Naji Tamimi told AFP.
Her cousin Ahed Tamimi, 16, and Ahed’s mother Nariman Tamimi remain in custody, after they were also charged following the video of the cousins slapping and kicking two soldiers last month.
Nour was allowed to return to her home in the village of Nabi Saleh in the Israeli-occupied West Bank after posting a bail of 5,000 shekels ($1,450, 1,200 euros).
A guarantor vouched she would show up for her court proceedings, set to begin on February 12, her lawyer Gaby Lasky told AFP.
The military appeals court ruled Nour would also have to sign in at an Israeli police station every Friday at noon.
On Sunday, a military court charged Nour with aggravated assault of a soldier and disturbing soldiers carry out their duties.
Ahed’s family says the December 15 incident that led to the charges occurred in the yard of their home in Nabi Saleh, near Ramallah.
Israel’s military said the soldiers were in the area to prevent Palestinians from throwing stones at Israeli motorists nearby.

  1. Palestine people should learn from Ghandy ( India) how he struggled to expel Inggeris colonization from India,
    By peace and not rage or with arms.
    Israel is too strong to fight with arms. Fight with peace and love.
