Palestinian Girl Arrested For Repeatedly Slapping Israeli Soldier

Palestinian Girl Arrested For Repeatedly Slapping Israeli Soldier

The remand of 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi's mother, who was arrested on suspicion of assault and incitement, was also extended until Thursday.

Al-Tamimi's father said the girl was reacting to the shooting of her cousin, Mohammed al-Tamimi, on 15 December, by Israeli soldiers during a protest against Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

On Monday night, the army balanced the scales by arresting the girl who had instigated the troubling encounter.

The arrest came after a video went viral on social media, showing Ahed slapping, kicking and punching two armed Israeli soldiers with M16 guns, helmets, and body armors.

"She was arrested on suspicion of attacking Israeli soldiers during the riots", it said. The goal of these provocateurs, of course, is to elicit a violent response from the soldiers, which can then be used to further smear the Jewish state on the worldwide stage.

Hours after the pre-dawn raid, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman vowed to exact a price from the girl, her family, and her village.

Claude Puel's Leicester City thump sorry Southampton 4-1
Leicester City boss Claude Puel insisted he took no extra pleasure in Wednesday's 4-1 thrashing of former club Southampton . They will have different situations but it is a good opportunity for us because also we maybe have more space than normal".

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".

Tamimi is well known as a leader of youth protests against Israeli soldiers in the West Bank.

The girl, identified by Hebrew media as 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi, and two other girls were caught on camera Friday slapping and harassing the soldiers in an apparent attempt to provoke a violent response.

Though the video has been hailed by Tamimi's supporters as a courageous 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.

The Tamimi family made headlines in 2012, when "Shirley Temper" was filmed shaking her fist and stamping her feet at an Israeli soldier following the arrest of her brother, the Daily Sabah reported.
