Gaza8Jan1NEW YORK (PNIC):-New York city on Friday witnessed a mass demonstration demanding the release of the 16-year-old Palestinian girl Ahed al-Tamimi from Israeli jails.

Hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters took part in the demonstration organized near New York's Grand Central Terminal and raised banners calling for releasing Ahed and asking the US to stop helping Israel.

The demonstrators chanted slogans asserting that "Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine" and condemning Israel's abduction of Palestinian children.

Ahed was arrested during an Israeli overnight raid into Nabi Saleh village in Ramallah on 19th December 2017, based on instructions by Israel's war minister Avigdor Lieberman, after a video of Ahed slapping an Israeli soldier in an attempt to drive him out of her family's property had gone viral. Her mother, Nariman, was arrested shortly afterward.
