Ahed Tamimi, Palestinian teenager who slapped Israeli soldier, jailed for 8 months
ABC News, 22 Mar 2018
"Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi has been sentenced to eight months in prison for slapping and kicking a pair of Israeli soldiers outside her home in the occupied West Bank. The sentencing capped a case that sparked uproar in Israel, turned the 17-year-old girl into a Palestinian hero and attracted international attention."
UN officials condemn arbitrary arrest of Palestinian children
Al Jazeera News, 21 Mar 2018
"United Nations officials condemned the continued arbitrary detention of Palestinian children by Israel saying the practice has become "systematic and widely spread". A series of UN reports presented at the Human Rights Council shows how the living conditions of Palestinians across the West Bank and Gaza have dramatically worsened over the past year, and how children are bearing the brunt of the Israeli occupation, said Kate Gilmore, the UN deputy high commissioner for human rights."
Diary of a Palestinian Girl
Facebook Page - Local Heroes, Mar 2018
Local Heroes presents the day-to-day realities of a Palestinian child living in the West Bank in a three part series called "Diary of a Palestinian Girl". Palestinian girl and aspiring journalist, Janna, talks about living in the occupation as a child including playing in a war zone, living in fear of raids, the inability to travel and more.
'Local Heroes are profile pieces that highlight the lives and work of people who dare to aim at the impossible to achieve a greater good. It zooms in on the lives of the ambitious, the revolutionary and the unconventional, grassroots go-getters.'
