  • Israel remands Palestinian girl filmed slapping soldier in West Bank

The girls filmed the soldiers with cellphones, which seemed to indicate they were trying to instigate a violent response from the soldiers.

Ahed Tamimi, the 16-year-old filmed slapping two Israeli soldiers Friday, was arrested Tuesday following the West Bank striking incident in the village of Nabi Saleh.

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.

"They didn't give a reason for her arrest", Tamimi's father Bassem told French news agency AFP.

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

Hours after the pre-dawn raid, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman vowed to exact a price from the girl, her family, and her village. "Later, several Palestinian women came out to face the soldiers in order to incite provocation". Bennett noted that under Israeli law, attacking soldiers is punishable by up to seven years in jail.

Israeli security forces have arrested Ahed Tamimi, 16, the Palestinian girl who was seen slapping an IDF soldier in a video, that has gone viral.

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.

Two years ago, her family made headlines when an Israeli soldier violently attempted to arrest her younger brother, who had one arm in a cast at the time.

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.
