Ahd Tamimi arrested for slapping an Israeli soldier raiding her house

Posted December 20, 2017

Several years earlier, in another Tamimi family production, Ahed was filmed threatening to strike IDF soldiers in an incident that went viral on video. They circulated pictures of Ahed when she was a little girl raising a fist in front of Israeli soldiers.

The army said the girl was arrested for taking part in violent riots in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh on Friday. Tonight, soldiers raided Nabi Saleh and arrested Ahed Tamimi.

Tamimi and two other teenage girls had filmed themselves hitting the soldiers, yelling at them and - at one point - slapping one of them across the face.

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 worldwide protest.

Ahed Tamimi, a prominent 16-year-old Palestinian activist, has been detained during a pre-dawn raid on her home by the Israeli army and border police in the occupied West Bank.

Her family are prominent campaigners against the Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

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

An Israeli army spokesperson told Al Jazeera that Ahed was suspected of "assaulting a soldier and an IDF officer".

The Tamimis say they choose to cultivate strength, not fear within their children - even if that means teenagers get pulled out of bed and taken away to unknown locations in the middle of the night by fully armed soldiers. "She was trying to force them to leave to prevent the soldiers from hurting anyone else". We are used to criticism from the global community about the violence of the occupation, but we are not so accustomed to criticism over two soldiers who thought before raising their hands to strike.

Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett told Army Radio this morning that he believed the young girls in the video "should finish their lives in prison". And they continue to pay the price for their refusal to accept the status quo, for their steadfast challenge to mechanisms of the occupation. The iconic image of a blindfolded 16-year-old Palestinian named Fawzi al Junaidi being dragged by Israeli soldiers became a symbol of last week's protests against Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Ahed has been praised by activists and the worldwide community for her courage during protests in Nabi Saleh, which have been held every Friday in the village for years.
