There was no immediate comment from Israeli authorities on the matter.

The Tamimi family had planned to leave Friday morning, Basim said, adding neither the Palestinian nor the Israeli authorities provided a reason for the ban.

On July 29, Israeli authorities released Ahed al-Tamimi and her mother, Nariman, after both had served eight months behind bars.

The 17-year-old was arrested in December after a video went viral showing the young woman, then 16, pushing and hitting Israeli soldiers who tried to enter her family residence in Nabi Saleh.

She was later slapped with an eight-month jail term for "attacking" an Israeli soldier.

Tamimi, who was already a prominent advocate of Palestinian independence prior to her arrest, has since become an international symbol of resistance against Israel's occupation in the West Bank.
