Nareman and Bassim Tamimi, her parents
Ahed’s parents are leaders of the popular resistance of Nabi Saleh. This translates into detentions, injuries and long absences. Both have been arrested several times. Her father, Bassim Tamimi, has been arrested nine times. The last time he spent 13 months in prison and visits were very limited. Her mother, Nareman Tamimi, has been detained five times and was injured in her thigh when she was hit by a live bullet four months ago. It will take her one more year to fully recover. Ahed’s brothers have also been detained. Ahed is only a teenager, but all these experiences have made her grow up as she has had to replace her mother while she has not been there.
