The case sparked an outpouring of deeply opposing perspectives between Israelis and Palestinians.

Following the incident, Israel’s Education Minister Naftali Bennett said Ahed Tamimi deserved to “finish their lives in jail”.

Many Israelis say Ahed Tamimi has long been exploited by means of her family, who they accuse of the usage of her to try to provoke Israeli infantrymen on film.

For Palestinians, she has change into a national icon for what they see as acts of bravery in status as much as armed soldiers on occupied land.

Her face has gave the impression on side road murals and posters, whilst an online petition organised by means of her father calling for her release collected 1.7m signatures.
