Palestinian student Lina Khattab’s military court hearing postponed until 12 January

Lina Khattab, 18, Palestinian first-year media student at Bir Zeit University and folkloric cultural dancer with the El-Funoun Popular Palestinian Dance Troupe, had her hearing postponed once again by the Ofer Israeli military court on Monday, 5 January until next Monday, 12 January. This follows similar postponements on 22 December and 29 December 2014. Khattab, an active student on the Bir Zeit campus, is charged with “throwing stones” and “participating in an unlawful demonstration,” charges frequently leveled at Palestinians participating in demonstrations or popular protests challenging the military occupation of their land.
