Local Edited

Palestinian teenager, Ahed Tamimi, should have been shot "at least in the knee", a Knesset member said.

The "Israeli" entity's Deputy Knesset Speaker Bezalel Smotrich

Ahed Tamimi, 17, is serving an eight-month prison sentence after she was filmed slapping an "Israeli" soldier. Ahed Tamimi, the Palestinian teenager famed for slapping an "Israeli" soldier on camera.

The "Israeli" entity's Deputy Knesset Speaker Bezalel Smotrich wrote on Twitter Saturday. "In my opinion, she should have gotten a bullet, at least in the kneecap," he wrote. "That would have put her under house arrest for the rest of her life." He was responding to journalist Yinon Magal, who had reposted the footage of Tamimi slapping the soldier along with the text, "I'm watching this clip again and am so glad that Tamimi is still in jail. Sometimes, it's good that the mills of justice grind slowly."

Tamimi has become a cause celebre for critics of the "Israeli" entity, after videos of her confrontation with "Israeli" soldiers in her home in the occupied West Bank's Nabi Saleh were posted on Facebook.

The flare-up was ignited by "Israeli" forces' refusal to leave the Tamimi home in December, the same day her 15-year-old cousin Mohammed Tamimi was shot in the head with a steel-coated rubber bullet.

Soon after the confrontation Tamimi was arrested and later sentenced to eight months' imprisonment, with human rights groups such as Amnesty International calling for her to be released.

The Palestinian teenager was sentenced to eight months in prison plus a fine of 5,000 shekels ($1,400). Tamimi's mother Nariman and cousin Noor were also convicted in slapping incident.

Nariman Tamimi, who shot the video, was sentenced to eight months in prison and a 6,000-shekel fine for incitement, abetting an assault and interfering with a soldier. Noor, who also slapped the soldier, was given a five-month suspended sentence and fined 2,000 shekels. In the original indictment, Ahed Tamimi was also charged with several other charges, including throwing stones on various occasions.
