Israel remands Palestinian girl filmed slapping soldier in West Bank

Palestinian Ahed Tamimi arrested by Israeli forces

A video of Ahed Tamimi, a well-known 16-year-old activist from the village of Nabi Saleh, kicking and slapping two soldiers was first posted on December 15 following clashes in the village between the army and locals.

Ahed's arrest came a day after a video of the teen confronting Israeli soldiers during protests in Nabi Saleh on Friday over US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital went viral.

The girl, identified by her family as activist Ahed Tamimi, is accused of assault and taking part in a riot.

"The IOF [Israeli occupying forces] raid my home and arrested my daughter Ahed Tamimi after the Israeli media attaks [sic] here after she stop the solder [sic] in front of our house when he shot child on his head", the status read.

The army said that the soldiers "acted professionally and were not dragged into violence", though they could have arrested the girls.

Al-Nabi Saleh is a village of 600 Palestinian inhabitants surrounded by the illegal Halamish settlement.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked the USA for using its veto in a video posted to Facebook. Embassy would move to the ancient city from Tel Aviv in a few years, RFE/RL reported.

Though the video has been hailed by Tamimi's supporters as a fearless act in the struggle of the Palestinian people, the viral video has also been used by pro-Israel voices who instead saw the clash as a display of "IDF restraint and professionalism", the Post reported.

In 2015, a picture of Ahed as a child biting the hand of a soldier to try to stop the arrest of her cousin Mohammed became a symbolic image. That is precisely what didn't happen this week, and it is what disrupted all of the rules of the game, so much so that Channel 2 commentator Roni Daniel said Monday that he is unperturbed by the possibility that soldiers might be caught on camera beating the girls who disrespected them.

Members of the Palestinian Tamimi family have a long history of attempting to stage confrontations with IDF soldiers, which they film and photograph to serve as anti-Israel propaganda.

Nafatali Bennet, Israel's education minister who is known for his hawkish views, told Army Radio on Tuesday that Ahed and the other women in the video should "finish their lives in prison". One year later, she witnessed the army shoot and kill her uncle Rashadi.
