Army arrests Palestinian teen for hurting soldiers' masculinity

Israel remands Palestinian girl filmed slapping soldier in West Bank

Israel remands Palestinian girl filmed slapping soldier in West Bank

Ahd's friend, Jana Tamimi, posted a video after the arrest of Ahd, 17, in which she explained in English what happened during the night.

Tamimi and her family have always been targets of the Israeli authorities and the animosity towards them grew even further after numerous videos of the fearless young activist standing up to IOF soldiers went viral on social media, amassing millions of views.

Reacting to the incident, Israeli military said; "Several Palestinians entered a nearby home and continued throwing rocks at soldiers from inside the home with its occupants' consent".

The Palestinians struggle against the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip, territories that Israel seized in the 1967 and has held ever since, despite global protest.

In 2012, Ahed was awarded with "Hanzala Courage Award" by Başakşehir Municipality in Istanbul for challenging Israeli soldiers, who had arrested her brother.

Ahed was nine when weekly demonstrations began in Nabi Saleh to protest the seizure of the village's spring by settlers.

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.

After which, CNIL made a decision to issue formal notice to WhatsApp to comply with the Data Protection Act within one month. No further action will be take by the Cnil if WhatsApp complies with the order.

Clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli soldiers are common in the area, and have intensified in recent weeks following President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

According to Palestinian official figures, more than 6,400 Palestinians are now held in detention facilities throughout Israel.

"The occupation aims to arrest the people in the videos that appear to show symbolic victory to silence their voices or action because it helps to raise their morale", adds Abu al-Rub. After a six-hour surgery the boy was put into a medically induced coma for at least 72 hours.

Nariman and Bassem have both been detained more times than either can count, but this is the first time their daughter will spend nights in Israeli prison.

Earlier on Tuesday, the occupying state's Minister of Education, Naftali Bennet, also spoke against Tamimi.

Manal says the Israeli army was responding to a social media campaign among Israelis who demanded that Ahed be arrested after the video went viral. As the daughter of parents who are leading activists in the popular struggle against the occupation in the village of Nabi Saleh, she has been part of the struggle her entire life. "This is also an important message", Lieberman continued.
