BETHELEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces detained three graffiti artists on Saturday as they were painting a giant four-meter mural of a 17-year-old Palestinian icon on the separation wall in the occupied West Bank.

The 17-year-old Palestinian, Ahed al-Tamimi, who is seen as a symbol of Palestinian resistance to the Israeli occupation, was detained after she was filmed kicking and slapping an Israeli soldier, who had encroached on her family’s property, while other Israeli soldiers shot her 15-year-old cousin, Muhammad, in the face with a rubber-coated steel bullet.

Ahed was finally freed on Sunday after eight months of imprisonment in Israeli Sharon prison.

Her mother, Nariman, who was detained one day after Ahed and later charged with “incitement” for filming and publishing Ahed’s now famous incident, was also released.

Ahed’s story has become a symbol of Palestinian resistance to the Israeli occupation, showing the world that even a 17-year-old may be the start of long-awaited change.
