Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi gave a press conference outside her home in Nabi Salih, 20km (12mi) from Ramallah, on Sunday after being released from an Israeli prison.

"I hope that the campaigns that were established for me continue and carry on for the other prisoners because there are more and I stand with them in these campaigns in support of their families," Tamimi said.

Seventeen-year old Tamimi was charged with 12 offences, including assaulting security forces and incitement to violence, after she slapped an Israeli soldier on camera in December 2017.

She was first sentenced to eight months in jail, but accepted a plea bargain shortening her sentence.
