• Zionist entity imposes travel ban on Palestinian resistance icon Tamimi, family

Zionist entity have banned Palestinian resistance icon Ahed al-Tamimi and her family from traveling abroad, nearly two months after she was released from Israeli prison after serving an eight-month sentence for slapping a Zionist soldier.

Her father Basim al-Tamimi told Turkey's official Anadolu news agency on Friday that the family had planned to travel to Europe via Jordan in order to participate in some events pertaining to the  the Palestinian protest movement, and the Palestinian prisoners' sufferings in Israeli detention centers.

They were, however, informed by Palestinian officials that Israel had banned them from traveling abroad without providing a reason.

He added that they had planned to leave on Friday morning.

She was also planning a visit to Iran.

In an exclusive interview with Press TV, Ahed's father said Zionist entity barred her daughter's trip for fear that she would foil the Israeli regime's "schemes for the disintegration of the region" by forging close relations with the enemies of Israel.
