Israel attacks Real Madrid over hosting Ahed Tamimi

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

MADRID – Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi was welcomed to the Santiago Bernabeu stadium by Real Madrid on Friday where she was offered a Real jersey and posed for photos with Emilio Butragueno, the club’s former striker and now director of institutional relations.

Israeli Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon blasted the club on Twitter and accused the Palestinian teenager of being a ‘terrorist’.

Ahed Tamimi, 17 years-old, rose to fame after being jailed eight months for slapping an Israeli soldier, and became a symbol of the Palestinian struggle against Israeli occupation.
