Palestinian Teen Who Slapped Israeli Soldiers Arrested Over Altercation

Palestinian Teen Who Slapped Israeli Soldiers Arrested Over Altercation

The military said an investigation had determined that an infantry company commander was one of the two soldiers shown being confronted in the video, and that he had "conducted himself professionally by not responding in kind".

Israeli security forces have arrested Ahed Tamimi, 16, the Palestinian girl who was seen slapping an IDF soldier in a video, that has gone viral.

Tonight, soldiers raided Nabi Saleh and arrested Ahed Tamimi.

A Palestinian teenager who was filmed slapping and harassing Israeli soldiers in the West Bank was arrested. The 14-year-old boy is now in a coma.

Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett told Army Radio this morning that he believed the young girls in the video "should finish their lives in prison".

Bassem al-Tamimi, Ahed's father and an activist opposing the Israeli settlements in Al-Nabi Saleh, confirmed his daughter's arrest on Facebook.

The woodwork came to Al Jazira's rescue once again in the 69th minute as Benzema's deflected effort from distance crashed against the upright.

Later that afternoon, Tamimi's mother was also arrested after she went to visit her daughter who was being held at a police station near Jabaa village in the Jerusalem district of the West Bank so she could be present during her interrogation, Al Jazeera reports.

Social media expert, Mohammed Abu al-Rub, believes that this type of recording, while it boosts the morale of people with symbolic victories in the face of major disappointments and the U.S. declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, constitute a threat to the people involved in them.

The sixteen-year-old is a member of a famous activist family from the village of Nabi Saleh, which holds nearly weekly protests against Israeli occupation.

Prisoners rights group Addameer recorded 6,198 Palestinians were detained by Israel as of October.

Translation: Ahed al-Tamimi, a courageous Palestinian woman, was raised in a family who refused to submit to the Israeli occupation laws; her father was arrested more than nine times, her mom five times, and her brother two times.

Then in 2015, a picture of the girl biting the hand of an Israeli soldier trying to arrest her brother became a symbolic photo shared widely around the world.
