The Communist Youth of Greece condemns the arrest of Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi

In a statement (here in Greek) about the arrest of young Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi by the Israeli Armed Forces in occupied West Bank, the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Youth of Greece (KNE), stresses out:

"The Communist Youth of Greece condemns the arrest of Ahed Tamimi by the Israeli army and demands her immediate release. The 22-year-old Palestinian fighter became a symbol of the heroic struggle of the Palestinian people against the Israeli occupation, when the image of the then-teenage Ahed slapping the armored Israeli soldiers traveled all over the world, and for this reason she was imprisoned for 8 months by the Israeli state.

The Israeli state's accusation of "inciting terrorism" is despicable, while the state-terrorist is drowning the Palestinian people in blood, turning the Gaza Strip into a children's cemetery.

We strengthen our solidarity with the Palestinian people! For his right to fight against the occupation, to have a free and independent homeland.

We strengthen the fight for Greece's disengagement from the carnage!

No participation in the Gaza massacre! The people do not become complicit in the crime!".

* It must be noted that Ahed Tamimi had visited Greece in September 2018 attending the political event of the 44th KNE-Odigitis Festival in Athens: http://www.idcommunism.com/2018/09/kne-festival-massive-attendance-surpassed-all-expectations-report-from-athens.html
