Ahed Tamimi Returns Before Israeli Show Trial
Trials of minors in military court are typically closed, but Tamimi's lawyer said previous hearings for the teenager were open and she argued for it to remain that way. She was denied bail at her hearing last month, with the prosecution arguing that she was unsafe and posed a risk of absconding. His daughter was reportedly upset when she approached the two soldiers and began slapping and kicking them.
The presiding judge in the military court ordered the court cleared of journalists and diplomats saying that an open trial would not be in the interest of the 17-year-old defendant, who is being tried as a minor.
"Stay strong, stay strong", shouted her father, Bassem, from the back row. "It's about time they will understand that people like her have to be in jail and not be allowed to incite".
Amnesty International, a London-based international group focused on human rights, has called for the release of the teenager and accused Israel of "discriminatory treatment of Palestinian children".
Ahead of Ahed Tamimi's trial, RT America visited her home village of Nabi Saleh to speak to her family.
Tamimi has been hailed as a hero by Palestinians who see her as bravely standing up to Israel 's occupation of the West Bank.
"While this decision nominally is said to protect Ahed", she said, "instead it really tries to protect the court". It was revealed later that the Palestinian girl was upset after soldiers had shot her 14-year-old cousin in the face a day earlier.
Tamimi arrived at the 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.

Xiaomi rolls out Redmi Note 5, Note 5 Pro in India
The remote for the Mi LED TV 4 has only 11 buttons and works through Bluetooth, so you don't have to actually point it at the TV. The high-end model has 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage , making it the first Xiaomi smartphone in India with this RAM capacity.
The scuffle took place amid clashes and protests against US President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel 's capital.
Mira Regev's reaction to the Tamimi video clip situates the Israeli reaction to Ahed Tamimi's in ways that seem to reflect the dominant mood in the country that perversely reverses the realities of oppressor and oppressed, victimizers and victims: "When I watched that I felt humiliated". He later had a section of his skull removed and is recovering at home.
To belittle her acts as instruments of "infowar" is also to ignore the uncertainty she faced when so strongly confronting Israeli soldiers and challenging their authority.
Other critics insist that the incident was staged by the Palestinians, with cameras at the ready, and not as spontaneous as the video wants us to believe.
Ahed's lawyer accuses the military of breaking the United Nations convention on the rights of a child during her nighttime arrest and interrogation, during which she says Ahed was threatened.
Senior Israeli government officials called for a harsh punishment.
Video from the attack shows the mob haranguing and attacking the soldiers as they cried out.
"None of the facts of this case would appear to justify her ongoing detention prior to her trial, particularly given the concerns expressed by the Committee on the Rights of the Child about the use of pre-trial detention and detention on remand".
