Rabat- An appeal by Ahed Tamimi’s attorney to have the teenage activist’s trial opened to the public has been denied by an Israeli military judge, according to The Times of Israel. Tamini, who was arrested on December 19 last year for slapping an Israeli soldier in her West Bank village of Nebi Saleh, quickly became an iconic symbol of Palestinian resistance, with the video of the incident being shared by thousands of users on various social media platforms.
