Ahed Tamimi was just 16 when she slapped an Israeli soldier in her village in the Occupied West Bank. She served eight months in Israeli prison and became an icon of Palestinian resistance to some, and a troublemaker and provocateur to others. Now she is almost 20, and rather than being out at university or protesting with her village, she’s been stuck inside four walls at home due to the coronavirus pandemic. And outside Palestine, a lot has changed, as Arab countries continue to normalize relations with Israel.
