¡Viva Palestina! Longlive Palestine!
Venezuela Lauds Ahed Tamimi Who Notes Maduro, Chavez Support
Tamimi expressed gratitude to the government, and specifically President
Nicolas Maduro, for unwavering support for Palestine.
The Venezuelan ambassador to Palestine, Maher Taha, presented teen freedom
fighter Ahed Tamimi with a communique issued by the Bolivarian government
The envoy met with the formerly incarcerated 17-year-old activist and her parents at their home in Nabi Saleh village. The edict from the
Venezuelan Government, in addition to celebrating the teen’s release, highlights the significance of Tamimi’s fearless
commitment to fighting for the freedom of the Palestinian people. Taha noted the longstanding friendship and brotherhood
which unite Palestine and Venezuela.
Tamimi, in turn, expressed gratitude to the government, and specifically President
Nicolas Maduro, for unwavering support for Palestine as well as underscoring
late Venezuelan president Comandante Hugo Chavez challenging injustice
and working towards the freedom of oppressed peoples.
Tamimi was in Israeli custody for eight months after being arrested along with
her mother on December 19, 2017. The teen – along with her cousin Nour
Tamimi – was filmed slapping and kicking two Israeli soldiers who had invaded the
Tamimi home, near Ramallah. One of the soldiers had earlier shot a 14-year-old
relative in the face with a rubber bullet.
