In this file photo taken on December 28, 2017 PalestinianAhed Tamimi (C), 16-year-old prominent campaigner against Israel's occupation, appears at a military court at the Israeli-run Ofer prison in the West Bank village of Betunia.
Was it a reluctance to acknowledge that their oh so innocent and heroic Palestinian icon had actually admitted to the aggravated assault of an IDF soldier, incitement to violence and disrupting soldiers on two other occasions?
Tamimi's lawyer, Gaby Lasky, said the sentence would include four months already served and a fine of 5,000 shekels (£1,017).
The Tamimi family of Nabi Saleh is well known internationally for their activism against the Israeli occupation, which maintains a heavy, near-constant presence in their village. The judge ordered that the trial be conducted behind closed doors and said having a large crowd in the courtroom was "not in the interest of the minor".
She was arrested in December after video surfaced of her accosting soldiers outside her West Bank home.
The plea deal included Nur and Nariman El-Tamimi, Ahed's cousin and mother, who were involved in the incident of slapping an armed soldier who entered the driveway of their house. Maybe it is better to tell it like it is, and state the simple truth: The court's decision to close its doors had nothing to do with protecting Tamimi's rights and everything to do with defending the image of the occupation. Her mother has also been charged with incitement.
"The occupation forces continued in their policy of arrest of Palestinian children, denying protection due to them by more than 27 worldwide conventions", according to a report by the Palestinian human rights organization Addameer.
Some compared Tamimi's sentence to that of an IDF soldier who was captured on video in 2016 fatally shooting an injured Palestinian man in what was described by one United Nations expert as an "extrajudicial execution". She has become a cause célèbre for Palestinian supporters, and rallies have been held in several locations calling for her release.
