RAMALLAH, Feb 13 (KUNA) -- An Israeli court in Ofer town on Tuesday extended imprisonment of the female Palestinian activist Ahd Al-Tamimi till March 11.
Palestinian journalists who attended beginning of the court hearing today said the presiding judge decided to prosecute Ahd in a closed-door session, thus they were ordered out of the courtroom before Ahd was brought in.
Israel detained Ahd in December after she appeared in a videotape hitting an Israeli soldier, breaking into her house.
International human rights organizations have slammed Israel for holding the young girl, who was active in anti-occupation demonstrations in her village, Nabi Saleh, west of Ramallah.
She has been accused of violence incitement -- among other charges.
The Israelis detained her mother, Nariman, the next day after Ahd's detention, when the woman went to an Israeli security detention station to inquire about her. (end)
