Palestinian Teen Who Slapped Israeli Soldiers Arrested Over Altercation

Palestinian Teen Who Slapped Israeli Soldiers Arrested Over Altercation

Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) on Tuesday arrested popular resistance activist, Nariman Tamimi, hours after arresting her 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi from their home in Nabi Saleh village, northern West Bank.

"A large Israeli force raided our house at dawn and arrested Ahed while she was sleeping in her bed", Basem al-Tamimi told Anadolu Agency.

The girls filmed their confrontation of the soldiers with cellphones.

Israeli incitement, led by Israeli army leaders and officials to arrest the girl, was, according to Israeli media, was because the general feeling that the Israeli army was humiliated despite the countless crimes committed by the Israeli army against the Palestinians.

Tamimi's mother was also arrested, and while Israeli police gave no reason for her detention, they did confirm that the pair would be in jail until at least Thursday.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman hailed the IDF as the "most humane army that exhibits moral values that do not exist elsewhere".


He also revealed that Ahed's 14-year-old cousin, Mohammed, had also been hit in the face with a rubber bullet fired by Israeli soldiers days ago. "Later, several Palestinian women came out to face the soldiers in order to incite provocation".

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

Nabi Saleh has been the frequent staging ground for provoked clashes between Israeli soldiers and Palestinians, specifically members of the Tamimi clan, which has a history of getting involved in highly publicized interactions with the IDF.

After the video was aired, which had generated wide global support for Ahd, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan invited her to visit Ankara and he bestowed a medal on her.

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.
