Erdoğan speaks with Palestinian teenage protester Ahed Tamimi over the phone
Erdoğan lauded her “bravery and determination to fight”, state-run Anadolu Agency reported on July 29.
“We will continue the resistance to achieve the freedom of the Palestinian people,” she told a press conference in the West Bank town of Nabi Saleh, west of Ramallah.
“We must boycott and isolate the [Israeli] occupation and put it on trial,” she added.
Tamimi was arrested in December after she slapped two Israeli soldiers outside her family home. She turned 17 in custody.
Some 300 minors are currently being held in Israeli prisons, according to Palestinian figures.
