Since the age of ten, Tamimi had repeatedly been sent out by her parents to “confront” Israeli soldiers by cursing at them or striking them while her family filmed the encounters for propaganda purposes. The girl’s aunt, Ahlam Tamimi, was the mastermind of an August 2001 suicide bombing that killed 15 people and wounded 130 in the Sbarro Pizzeria in Jerusalem.
