"The Palestinian girl Ahed Tamimi is a model for the Palestinian struggle for freedom, independence and the establishment of our independent Palestinian state", Abbas said, according to the official PA news agency Wafa.
Ahed Tamimi was sent to prison for assault after being filmed kicking and slapping an Israeli soldier late previous year, when she was just 16.
Israeli authorities on Sunday released Palestinian teen Ahed al-Tamimi and her mother from prison after an 8-month detention.
As part of a plea bargain, Tamimi agreed to serve eight months in prison and pay a fine of $1,375.
Faced with embarrassment as that video went viral, Israelis made a decision to arrest the courageous teenager.
She is due to be released on Sunday.
"The resistance continues until the occupation is removed", Ahed said upon her return. Which means that she will probably be at it again soon - at least as long as she hasn't hit age 18.
In a related incident, Israeli authorities on Saturday arrested two Italians and a Palestinian for painting Tamimi's now-familiar image on the Israeli security wall in the West Bank.

Wimbledon 2018: Serena Williams to face Angelique Kerber in women's final
But she made fewer errors and played smart tennis, putting the onus and pressure on the first-time semi-finalist. The 2012 Olympic heptathlon champion missed the Commonwealth Games in 2014 as she gave birth to her son Reggie.
She was aged 16 at the time and turned 17 in prison. But some Israeli lawmakers said that the 17-year-old's punishment should have been much harsher - the deputy speaker of the Israeli Knesset, Bezalel Smotrich, wrote on Twitter in April that Tamimi "should have gotten a bullet, at least in the kneecap".
Her mother Nariman was also arrested, as was her cousin Nour, who was freed in March.
In Nabi Saleh, supporters welcomed Ahed home with Palestinian flags planted on the roof of her home.
Israel treated her actions as a criminal offence, indicting her on charges of assault and incitement.
From the Rantis checkpoint, Tamimi headed to the tomb of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in Ramallah, where she laid some flowers. On Thursday, a visiting artist completed a massive mural paying tribute to Tamimi on the Palestinian side of the West Bank separation barrier in Bethlehem.
"I thank everyone who supported me in this sentence and supports all the prisoners". Her case has trained a spotlight on the detention of Palestinian minors by Israel, a practice that has been criticised by global rights groups.
Israeli authorities provided conflicting information on which checkpoint they were being taken to.
According to Palestinian figures, roughly 6,500 Palestinians - including an estimated 350 minors - are now languishing in Israeli prisons.
