An Israeli military court accepted a plea deal on Wednesday for a Palestinian teenager that will see her serve eight months in prison after a viral video showed her hit two Israeli soldiers.

The court's decision means Ahed Tamimi, 16 at the time of the December incident in the occupied West Bank, will be released this summer since the sentence includes time served, her lawyer Gaby Lasky said.
