AMMAN — Ahed Tamimi, the Palestinian activist who spent eight months in Israeli detention centres before being released last July, said that the Palestinian people’s struggle is to obtain their freedom, and not to gain the world’s sympathy or compassion.

During a meeting with the Jordan Media Institute’s (JMI) students, in the presence of JMI founder HRH Princess Rym, Tamimi added that she works to convey a message for the need to support Palestinian prisoners in their struggle for freedom and national unity.

She also explained that she was subjected to various psychological and physical pressures both during the 16 days of investigations, and after being transferred to prison.

She said she underwent deprivation of sleep and food, as well as threats to arrest or kill her relatives. Tamimi said she had committed to the right to remain silent and refused to sign any documents, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
