More than two-dozen high-profile art and film figures, as well as athletes and academics, from the USA have signed a petition calling for the release of Palestinian iconic teen Ahed Tamimi who faces 12 charges and is being tried in an Israeli military court behind closed doors.
Israeli forces first detained al-Tamimi on December 19 during an overnight raid carried out in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh for allegedly attacking Israeli soldiers.
Tamimi has been held in detention since she was arrested at her home by Israeli soldiers last December when she was 16.
On Tuesday morning Tamimi, wearing prison uniform and with her hands and feet in restraints, was led into the courtroom at the Ofer military prison near Ramallah for preliminary trial hearings.
"The Tamimi family stands up to Israel's brutality because they believe Palestinians, like ALL people, should be free".
She said that she organized delegations from the EP to come to the Occupied Palestinian Territories to "see with their own eyes" what is happening on the ground.
Israel is violating the global Convention on the Rights of the Child by detaining a Palestinian teenager for slapping an Israeli soldier, United Nations human rights experts said on Tuesday.

Irish artist Jim Fitzpatrick, who created the world famous image of Che Guevara in 1967, has given the same heroic treatment to teenage Palestinian protestor Ahed Tamimi, 17. He further reflected on his sister, who died after one of his remand hearings in the 1990s, "My sister died in one of these courts, we need the people and the media inside with us". However, Ahed reportedly requested, through her attorney Gabi Lasky, for her trial to be open to the public.
The judge reportedly chose to close the doors to the courtroom in the Ofer courthouse to everyone except Tamimi's family.
Said Mr Fitzpatrick: "I became aware of Ahed Tamimi about two years ago and I was kind of struck by this girl standing up to Israeli soldiers".
Israel's hard-charging prosecution of Tamimi, recognizable by her unruly mane of curly hair, has drawn worldwide attention and criticism. One photo shows the then 12-year-old raising a clenched fist toward a soldier towering over her.
Ahed's case was adjourned until March and is expected to continue for months, during which may be forced to stay in custody.
The scuffle took place amid clashes and protests against US President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
United Nations experts have pointed out that Tamimi was arrested in the middle of the night by armed soldiers, and questioned by Israeli security officials without a lawyer or family members present.
Though the Tuesday trial only lasted a few hours, it was ultimately brought to a close after prosecutors asked for more time to prepare their case.
