 The father of Palestinian teen activist icon Ahed Tamimi visited his daughter and wife in prison Monday for the first time since they were both arrested in December. Bassem Tamimi said he spoke to Ahed and his wife Nariman for 45 minutes, using a telephone as they sat on the other side of a window. The elder Tamimi said Tuesday they are both in good spirits. He said Ahed spends her time doing school work, reading, and focusing on her English studies. Monday, a petition to allow Ahed’s trial be open to the public was denied by the Military Court of Appeals.  The trial is slated to continue behind closed doors on Wednesday at the Ofer Military Court. Just over a month after Ahed's Dec. 19 arrest, a separate military judge ruled to extend her remand until the end of proceedings against her.
