Join the global day of action (https://www.facebook.com/events/148520499284296) to protest the ongoing incarceration and systematic targeting of members of the Tamimi family and the village of Nabi Saleh.

On Tuesday, December 19, 2017, now 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi was arrested from her family home in Nabi Saleh by the Israeli army under the cover of darkness. Ahed is one of over 300 Palestinian children in Israeli military detention. Her mother, Nariman Tamimi was arrested later on the same day when she went to inquire about her daughter. On Thursday, January 11, 2018, Mohammad Tamimi, Ahed’s cousin, was arrested from his home in Nabi Saleh. Eleven days later, his brother Osama was also arrested on his way home from work. All of them remain incarcerated and have been subjected to sleep deprivation, emotional abuse and inhumane interrogation.

The Tamimi family and the village of Nabi Saleh are targets of a political campaign that aims to crush their resistance to the Israeli settler-colonial regime. The Free the Tamimis Campaign calls on Palestine’s allies, comrades and supporters around the world to take action and demand the release of Ahed, Nariman, Mohammad and Osama, as well as all Palestinian prisoners.
