Palestinian Ahed El-Tamimi Jailed for 8 Months in a Plea Deal

Israel needs to kick out 450 elderly people to make room for new US embassy

Under the deal, offered by the military prosecution on Wednesday, Ahed Tamimi is expected to plead guilty to four charges, including assault, incitement and two counts of obstructing soldiers. To the Israelis, she is an example of Palestinian incitement.

In the case of the Tamimi family, one could assume that it was clear to them that what began as a "show trial" would eventually end in prison time.

"There is no justice under occupation". Denied bail, she was tried behind closed doors in a military court.

According to Tamimi's lawyer, Gaby Lasky, the sentence would include the three months Tamimi has already served and a fine of almost $1,500. The Israeli military filmed her being led out of her home in handcuffs.

Neither The Independent nor ABC News Australia included this information, leaving readers to assume that Tamimi's eight month sentence would be starting from now, further contributing to the poor optics that this case has resulted in for Israel. "Nothing she did warrants her continued imprisonment and she must be released immediately".

Tamimi's family have a long history of struggles with Israeli forces.

More than 105000 civilians have 'fled Eastern Ghouta' amid Assad regime's 'apocalypse'
The government's crushing offensive killed almost 1,500 people and wounded more than 5,000, according to opposition activists. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), during a news conference in Geneva.

Elor Azaria, the Israeli soldier who executed a wounded Palestinian, will serve 9 months in jail. Nariman Tamimi was arrested later that day, while Ahed's cousin, Nour Tamimi, was arrested the following morning. She reportedly also has accepted a plea bargain.

"When the European people see my daughter, blonde and blue-eyed, they are shaken, because they saw their children in front of them".

Defense for Children International-Palestine, a local group, said 331 Palestinians under the age of 18 were held in military detention as of May, according to the most recent statistics released by Israeli authorities, as reported by the Associated Press (AP).

In 2012, Istanbul's Basaksehir Municipality granted Ahed the prestigious Hanzala Courage Award for defying Israeli soldiers who had just arrested her brother. The army said the soldier "acted professionally" by showing restraint but right-wing politicians described his behavior as humiliating.

Israel disputes that its settlements are illegal and says their future should be determined in talks with the Palestinians, although the peace process has collapsed. "We can not have a situation in which soldiers are humiliated and hit and they do not act at that moment and arrest those who hurt them". The young woman, who has been locked up for three months, is thus evading a major sentence by renouncing prosecutor's office to accuse her of eight or charges, so that she could leave prison next August.

"The Israeli authorities must stop responding to relatively small acts of defiance with such disproportionately harsh punishments". A number of worldwide human rights organizations have condemned her arrest and called for her immediate release.
