BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities released, on late Thursday, a 20-year-old Palestinian female prisoner after 15 months of imprisonment.

According to local sources, Israeli authorities released Amira Taqatqa, 20, after she ended her 15-month sentence in Israeli prisons.

Sources added that upon her release, Amira paid a financial bail of 4,000 shekels ($1,102).

It is noteworthy that Amira, a resident from the southern occupied West Bank district of Bethlehem, was detained on August 2nd 2017 for allegedly carrying out a stabbing attack near the illegal Israel settlement of Gush Etzion.
