Tamimi is charged with five counts of assaulting security forces, as well as with incitement. Her mother is accused of incitement via social media.

Military Judge Haim Baliti rejected most of the arguments put forth by Attorney Gaby Lasky, who represents the Tamimis, during a previous round hearings held on Monday. Lasky argued against the prosecution’s decision to deem both Ahed and Nariman a “danger,” questioned why Ahed was subject to a different legal system than Israeli minors in the West Bank and called the arrests politically motivated.
