Ahed Tamimi family trying to visit Iran

September 16, 2018

TEHRAN – The family of Palestinian “hero” Ahed Tamimi, who became an icon after slapping an Israeli soldier and spending eight months in prison, are trying to travel to Iran, her father said.

Bassem Tamimi said his family had planned to travel to European and Arab countries to discuss Tamimi’s time behind bars but the Israeli regime barred them from exiting the country, ISNA reported on Saturday.

He added that they are trying to visit Oman and then Iran in order to participate in events on the Palestinian struggle for freedom.

Tamimi, who was 16 when she was arrested in December for hitting and kicking soldiers in front of her house in the occupied West Bank, was released in July.
