Ahed Tamimi remains in Israeli prison as "trial" adjourned

Military courthouse in the West Bank

Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi, 16, has gone on trial before an Israeli military court.

The next session in the case was set for the beginning of March.

After a few minutes, the judge suddenly ordered all spectators except family members to leave and announced that the proceedings would continue behind closed doors.

In a seven-page indictment, Tamimi faces 12 charges, which stem from multiple confrontations with soldiers spanning back to April 2016.

Tamimi has been under arrest since 2 December, 2017, over the video.

Outraged by a perceived insult to their occupation forces, Israeli leaders have vowed revenge against the Tamimi family and are subjecting Ahed, her mother Nariman and cousin Nour to military trials in kangaroo courts with a near-100 percent conviction rate.

Israel's hard-charging prosecution of Tamimi, recognizable by her unruly mane of curly hair, has drawn global attention and criticism.

"As an unarmed girl, Ahed posed no threat during the altercation with the two Israeli soldiers who were heavily armed and wearing protective clothing", said Magdalena Mughrabi, Amnesty International's deputy director for the Middle East and Africa.

While Palestinians saw the video as a child standing up to her occupiers, many Israelis saw her as a provocateur attempting to provoke a reaction - which the soldier did not give.

Tamimi arrived at the Ofer military court, near Jerusalem in the occupied West Bank, dressed in a prison jacket with her hands and feet shackled, smiling slightly as journalists photographed her. Bassem also told ISM about the poor conditions of Ahed's imprisonment, but said that his daughter was still strong despite her treatment. Lasky said she argued that the trial could not move forward because Israel 's occupation of the West Bank and its court system there is illegal.

Tamimi's Israeli lawyer said the family wanted the proceedings to be open and that the Israeli military was preventing scrutiny of the trial. The 17-year-old Tamimi is being held in an Israeli prison for nearly two months now.

The Israeli military says the soldiers were there to stop stones being thrown at Israeli motorists.

The scuffle took place amid clashes and protests against US President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel 's capital.

Ahed's 17-year old cousin Musab Firas Al-Tamimi was killed by a shot to the neck during a skirmish that occurred in Deir Nitham, Ahed's village on January 2018. In 2015, despite concerns raised by the global community, the army suspended a pilot program meant to decrease the number of Palestinian children arrested in nighttime raids, like the one in which Ahed was arrested.

More details of the incident emerged later Monday and Tuesday, after PA police rescued the two Israeli soldiers who had accidentally entered the large Arab city Monday afternoon, and soon faced a lynch mob.
