By Ali Sawafta NABI SALEH, West Bank (Reuters) – A Palestinian teenager released by Israel on Sunday after completing a prison term for kicking and slapping an Israeli soldier said she wanted to become a lawyer so she could continue her struggle against the occupation of the West Bank. Ahed Tamimi, 17, became a hero to Palestinians after the incident last December outside her home in Nabi Saleh, a village that has for years campaigned against land seizures by Israel, leading to confrontations with the Israeli military and Jewish settlers. Israelis regarded the incident, which Tamimi’s mother relayed live on Facebook, as a staged provocation.
