Israeli soldiers shot 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi's cousin in the face, shattering his skull. Shortly after, Ahed slapped an Israeli soldier who was trying to forcibly enter her home.

So they stormed into her house in the middle of the night and took her to a military prison, where she is being abused and traumatized.

Israeli writer Ben Caspit has publicly called for Ahed Tamini to be sexually assaulted while she is being imprisoned.

I just celebrated Ahed Tamimi's 17th birthday by empowering two refugee sewing moms in Palestine with Kiva loans. Both Sonia and Saeda live in the Gaza strip. They both supplement their family's income with sewing, and the loans will help each of them get a new sewing machine and materials for her work.
