Detention Of Ahed Tamimi

EDM number 728 in 2017-19, proposed by Philippa Whitford on 21/12/2017.
Categorised under the topics of International politics and government and Middle East.

That this House expresses deep concern that in the early hours of 19 December an Israeli Border Police unit broke into the Tamimi family home during a night raid in Nabi Saleh and arrested 17-year-­old Ahed Tamimi, taking her away for interrogation; believes that Ahed is targeted because she is the daughter of parents who are leading activists in the popular struggle against the occupation in the village of Nabi Saleh; acknowledges the reality of repression against ordinary Palestinians and notes the disproportionate response to any action taken by Ahed and rejects the routine use of night arrests and interrogation of minors by Israeli military forces which fuel further hatred and division; calls for the immediate unconditional release of Ahed Tamimi; and asks the Government to make representations to Israel that actions carried out by the occupying power that are not necessitated by genuine security concerns are in violation of the laws governing military occupation.

This motion has been signed by a total of 49 MPs.
