A rash of “Free Ahed Tamimi” posters sponsored by the “Freedom for Palestinian Prisoners” organization planted on the sides of bus stops all over London were apparently not supposed to be there.
Re Tamimi posters on @JCDecaux_UK bus stops:
"It was an act of vandalism which was not supported or approved by JCDecaux. Our teams are removing the posters. Pl let us know where this bus shelter is so that we can make sure that it gets removed.We deeply regret this incident".

The posters featured a life-sized black-and-white sketch of Ahed Tamimi, the almost-17-year-old Palestinian Authority provocation video star from the Arab village of Nabi Saleh who slapped, punched and kicked two Israeli soldiers last month.
Tamimi was arrested for the assault, along with her mother and 21-year-old cousin Nour, both of whom were also involved in the attack, which was filmed and streamed live on Facebook.
The company, which oversees transport advertising in London, JCDecaux, removed the posters, calling their placement “an act of vandalism which was not supported or approved by us.”
The company said that it “removed the posters as soon as we were made aware of them. We deeply regret this incident.”
