Israel arrests Palestinian teen who forced them off her land

Israel arrests Palestinian teen who forced them off her land”

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

A 16-year-old Palestinian girl was arrested early this morning after a video of her telling Israeli soldiers to leave her property went viral, according to Haaretz.

Her father claims the video was filmed immediately after Israeli forces fired tear-gas canisters at their home. However, the servicemen did not oblige the girls, and refrained from retaliating throughout the encounter.

Many Israelis have long complained that restrictive rules of engagement permit Palestinian Arabs to molest IDF soldiers with impunity.

The video, filmed amid ongoing protests last Friday, shows Tamimi along with two other women, telling two armed Israeli soldiers to remove themselves from her property.

The army said a preliminary investigation into the incident showed the soldiers "acted professionally and were not dragged into violence".

"The soldiers didn't respond", it added. Bennett noted that under Israeli law, attacking soldiers is punishable by up to seven years in jail.

The occupation forces said the Female Border Police and Israeli army soldiers removed 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi from her home in Nabi Saleh, near Ramallah, and she was brought in for questioning.

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.

In 2012, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan sat down for breakfast with Ahed who won the Turkish Handala Courage Award for challenging the Israeli troops in her village.

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.
