Posted text: "[District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh] Dr. Laila Ghannam hosts released prisoner Ahed Tamimi (i.e., Palestinian teen who assaulted Israeli soldiers and promoted suicide bombings) and her family. District Governor Ghannam conveyed her blessings to all of the praiseworthy female prisoners and the child prisoners by saying that they are writing the most spectacular stories of heroism in the face of the occupation's cruelty. She called on the international institutions and the human rights organizations to put pressure on the occupation in order to put an end to their suffering given the difficult conditions and the deliberate medical neglect being carried out against them. It should be noted that the occupation army arrested the child Muhammad Tamimi, Ahed's brother, this morning [April 8, 2019] at the family's home in Nabi Saleh.
