Posters in support of a Palestinian teennager detained for assaulting Israeli soldiers have been removed from bus stops around London.

JCDecaux, which oversees transport advertising, removed the promotions depicting Ahed Tamimi, 17, who was arrested by the IDF after being filmed attacking soldiers.

The posters contain the slogans Free Ahed Tamimi” and “Freedom for Palestinian prisoners”, next to an illustration of the teenager’s confrontation with the IDF.

JCDecaux called the stunt “an act of vandalism which was not supported or approved by us”. The company added: “We removed the posters as soon as we were made aware of them and deeply regret the incident.”
