An Israeli court on Thursday evening decided to release 21-year-old Nour Tamimi on a bail, rejecting an appeal presented by the Israeli military prosecution against her release.
The court rejected the Israeli military prosecutions appeal and decided to release Tamimi on a 5,000 shekel ($1,455) bail.
Al-Tamimi was held in Israeli prison for two weeks. She was arrested in mid-December after her cousin, 16-year-old Ahed, was detained for standing up to Israeli soldiers who were on her family’s property in Nabi Saleh in the central occupied West Bank district of Ramallah.
Nour was featured in the video next to her cousin Ahed, and was detained seemingly for involvement in the incident, though no charges were brought against her.
Ahed has been indicted on 12 charges, including assaulting an officer and previous accusations of stone throwing.
