A 12-year-old Palestinian girl, imprisoned by Israel after she confessed to planning a stabbing attack on Israelis in a West Bank settlement, returned home Sunday after she was freed following an appeal.

Dima al-Wawi is believed to be the youngest female Palestinian ever imprisoned.

Al-Wawi was greeted by about 80 relatives at her family's house in Halhoul, a village near Hebron, a city in the occupied West Bank that has been a focal point of violence.

Relatives decorated the house with balloons, posters, and banners to welcome the girl home.

The continued Israeli expansion of settlements in the occupied West Bank has been widely condemed by the world community as illegal under international law.
