"The Palestinian people will continue their struggle against the Israeli occupation", al-Tamimi told reporters upon her release in her hometown Nabi Saleh village, west of the West Bank city of Ramallah. They are led away through an opening in the barrier.
Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi was released from prison Sunday after an eight-month sentence for slapping two Israeli soldiers, an episode captured on video that made her a symbol of resistance for Palestinians. He said she initially hoped to attend a West Bank university but has also received scholarship offers from overseas.
Ahed was arrested in December after she slapped two Israeli soldiers outside her family home. "It's a big price but if that will help to solve the Palestinian issue, we are glad for that", her father said ahead of Ahed and Nariman's release, adding that he is concerned by the continued occupation. He did not say what this would entail.
There had been slight tension at the checkpoint before Tamimi's arrival as a few men with Israeli flags approached supporters holding a Palestinian flags.
Thanking all the people, media and campaigners for supporting her, the Palestinian activist called for a similar campaign for the release of other political prisoners, particularly minors, held in Israeli jails.
"I want to also reiterate the message that Jerusalem is and will always be the capital of Palestine", she said, repeating an assertion she was recorded making during the viral December incident, which came weeks after US President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
Ahed's mother, Nariman, also was arrested and charged over her involvement in the slapping incident, in which she filmed Ahed with a cellphone camera calling on her fellow Palestinians to stab Israelis, throw rocks at them and offer themselves as suicide bombers in order to "liberate Palestine".
Sixteen at the time, she was originally charged with 12 counts of assault, incitement, interference with soldiers and stone throwing.
For Palestinians, she has become a national icon for what they see as acts of bravery in standing up to armed soldiers on occupied land.
While in Ramallah, she met with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the presidential headquarters, according to official Palestinian news agency Wafa.
The day before Ahed Tamimi was released, two Italians were arrested for drawing a 4m (13ft) mural of the teenager's face on the wall that separates Bethlehem from Jerusalem.
But in Israel, many welcomed Ahed's arrest.
They then move backwards after Nariman Tamimi becomes involved.
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.
Relatives say that a member of the Tamimi family was wounded in the head by a rubber bullet fired during those protests.
