Palestinian teen protest icon Ahed al-Tamimi leaves Israeli prison

At the same time, Tamimi and her mother Nariman were taken from the Sharon prison inside Israel to their home village of Nabi Saleh in the occupied West Bank after serving their sentences.

An Israel Prison Service spokesperson said Tamimi had left the Sharon prison and was enroute to the West Bank, where her family are veterans of protests against an Israeli settlement near their home.

Tamimi, 17, became a heroine to Palestinians previous year following the incident outside her home in the village of Nabi Saleh.

The incident came just after Tamimi learned her cousin had been gravely wounded by an Israeli soldier who shot him in the head using a rubber-coated steel bullet.

Tamimi, who was 16 at the time of her detention, faced 12 charges, including aggravated assault.

Video of it went viral, leading Palestinians to view her as a hero standing up to Israel's occupation. She was arrested shortly after and accepted an eight-month plea bargain in May.

That's what we will do again. "I am not in doubt about our basis or that we will reach it again". However, they sold Brazil playmaker Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for £142m in January.

The UN, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch called for her release, and hundreds marched in the streets for her freedom in Europe and the US.

Some Israeli media have referred to her as the "soldier slapper" or nicknamed her "Shirley Temper" due to her wild locks of blonde hair. "I salute everyone who supported me and my case".

Tamimi's family arrived at a checkpoint in the West Bank, where they spoke briefly to reporters before heading to their home village of Nebi Saleh.

Through military rule, it maintains control over most of the West Bank, where the Palestinians have limited autonomy. Israeli police said they were caught in the act along with another Palestinian and arrested for vandalism.

Ahed's case has trained a spotlight on the detention of Palestinian minors by Israel, a practice that has been criticised by worldwide rights groups. Some 300 minors are now being held, according to Palestinian figures.

Palestinians are increasingly disillusioned about efforts to establish a state in those territories, after more than two decades of failed negotiations with Israel.
