Israel sentences teenage Palestinian girl to 18 months in prison
The Israeli military court sentenced a 16-year-old Palestinian girl, Amal Jamal Qabha, to a year and a half in prison for allegedly attempting to stab an Israeli soldier last year at a checkpoint in the northern occupied West Bank.
Amal Jamal Qabha, or the prison's goldfinch bird as called by the fellow women detainees. She managed through her brush to paint huge smiles on the faces of all women around her in prison.
She was summoned for trial 14 times, and was insulted and humiliated each time she was shuttled to court and on the way back to prison.
