The government on Monday night approved the inclusion of 50 female prisoners in the list of prisoners eligible to be released in the event that a release of additional Israeli hostages is carried out.
Following the decision, the Ministry of Justice published on its website the names of 50 additional security prisoners held in the custody of the Israel Prison Service, who may be released in phase 2 of the plan for the release of Israeli hostages.
- The newly published list includes, among others, terrorist supporter and instigator Ahed Tamimi, who is considered one of the symbols of the Palestinian Arab fight against Israeli policy due to her actions against IDF soldiers.
- In March 2018, Tamimi was convicted of four counts of assaulting an IDF officer and soldier, incitement and interfering with IDF forces, after she was filmed slapping an Israeli soldier during a protest of leftists and Palestinian Arabs in her town of Nabi Saleh. She was sentenced to eight months’ imprisonment in practice and fined 5,000 shekels as part of a plea bargain.
- Just three weeks ago, she was arrested once again over serious online incitement against the IDF and over her calls for the murder of Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria.
In a post on her Instagram account a week earlier, Tamimi wrote, “Our message to the settlers – we are waiting for you in all the cities of the West Bank, from Hebron to Jenin. We will slaughter you and you will say that what Hitler did to you was a joke. We will drink your blood and eat your skulls, come on, we’re waiting for you.”
