Military judge orders all media out of Ahed al-Tamimi’s courtroom

FNA- The Israeli military judge ordered on Tuesday all media to leave the courtroom at Ofer military camp where the trial of Ahed al-Tamimi is being held, according to reports.

Tamimi, 17, who was detained in December after she was filmed slapping an Israeli soldier who raided her family home in Nabi Saleh village near Ramallah, is facing a number of charges including humiliating Israeli soldiers, WAFA reported.

Reports said the military judge removed all the press corps from the courtroom before the start of Tamimi’s trial, which is being held in a closed session.

However, after a short hearing, the court ruled to postpone the trial of Tamimi and her mother Nariman until March.

Nariman was detained on the same day as her daughter and charged with incitement for filming the slapping of the soldier and for posting it on the internet.

Tamimi’s detention has garnered world condemnation and support for the Palestinian teenager.
