Al-Tamimi appeared before the Ofer military court, west of the West Bank city of Ramallah, on charges of attacking security forces.
The defiant teen – in handcuffs and shackles -- has flashed the victory sign as she entered the court room, according to her father Basem al-Tamimi.
“The court decided to postpone Ahed’s trial until March 11,” Basem told Anadolu Agency.
According to Yediot Aharonot daily, the judge overseeing al-Tamimi’s trial has ordered all proceedings to be held behind closed doors.
The judge argued that the closed-door trial was meant “for the protection of the minor”, the newspaper said.
Israeli forces first detained al-Tamimi on Dec. 19 during an overnight raid carried out in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh for allegedly attacking Israeli soldiers.
In 2012, Istanbul’s Basaksehir Municipality granted al-Tamimi the prestigious Hanzala Courage Award for defying Israeli soldiers who had just arrested her brother.
