Bassem Tamimi told the Anadolu Agency earlier this week that he expected his 17-year-old daughter to be released from an Israeli prison on Sunday, July 29. Bassem’s prediction came true when, 21 days short of fulfilling her eight-month jail term, Ahed Tamimi walked free.

“This is a day of relief, which we hope will blossom into happiness once this brutal military occupation is out of our lives. … I call on members of the international community to uphold their responsibility towards our people and take concrete steps to end this perpetual injustice.”
