Tamimi's case had drawn global attention and she received a hero's welcome in the West Bank after her release.
Palestinian teen Ahed Tamimi, who became an worldwide symbol of resistance to Israeli occupation after slapping two soldiers, walked out of an Israeli prison Sunday and told throngs of journalists and well-wishers that she now wants to study law to defend her people.
"I thank everyone who supported me in this sentence and supports all the prisoners". But she said, I hope that the occupation will be gone so I won't even think about doing these things again.
From her home, Ahed headed to a visit to the grave of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
He said she completed her high school exams in prison with the help of other prisoners who taught the required material.
Underlying her case are clashing narratives about Israel's half-century rule over the Palestinians, the extent of permissible Palestinian resistance to it and the battle for global public opinion.
Tamimi, now 17, was sent to prison for assault after being filmed kicking and slapping an Israeli soldier late previous year, when she was 16.
Supporters are preparing a festive homecoming for Tamimi in her West Bank village of Nabi Saleh later this morning.
Israeli police say the artists were caught in the act and arrested for vandalism.
But for Israelis, Tamimi is being used by her activist family as a pawn in staged provocations. Her father Bassem put his arms around Ahed and her mother as they walked together along a road, while a crowd of around 100 chanted "we want to live in freedom".
They point to a series of previous incidents, with older pictures of her confronting soldiers shared widely online.
Tamimi was arrested in the early hours of December 19, four days after the incident in the video.
"Israel persistently violates the rights of Palestinian political prisoners while the global community turns a blind eye to such illegal behavior and inhumane treatment", said Ashrawi. She was 16 at the time. Ahed Tamimi says she plans to study law to defend the rights of her people.
The Palestine Liberation Organisation said on Twitter that Israeli forces had arrested the two Italian artists and a Palestinian who was with them.
The video shows the cousins approaching them and telling them to leave, before shoving, kicking and slapping them.
AHED TAMIMI: (Foreign language spoken).
They then move backward after Nariman Tamimi becomes involved. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas suspended contacts with the USA after President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December in what Palestinians denounced as a display of blatant pro-Israel bias.
Relatives say that a member of the Tamimi family was wounded in the head by a rubber bullet fired during those protests.
