Viral video of teen slapping soldiers has both sides claiming a win

According to father of Ahed, Bassem Tamimi, a large Israeli force raided the family home at dawn and arrested Ahed Tamimi while she was sleeping in her bed.

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

Over the past years, pictures of Ahed Tamimi have appeared again and again, each time standing barehanded and straight-backed facing down heavily armed and armored soldiers: the female version of David facing Goliath.

Later in the afternoon, Nariman went to visit Ahed, who was being held at a police station near Jabaa village in the Jerusalem district of the West Bank, so that she could be present during the minor's interrogation.

For the supporters of Nabi Saleh, the teenager remains a hero who has been filmed for years shouting at Israeli soldiers and sometimes scuffling with them.

The spokesperson accused Ahed of participating in a "violent riot", referring to Friday's protests during which hundreds of Palestinians threw stones at Israeli forces.

Mohammed Tamimi shot in the face with rubber bullet by Israeli security forces during protests over US Jerusalem move. "This is occupation", he said.

Members of the Palestinian Tamimi family have a long history of attempting to stage confrontations with IDF soldiers, which they film and photograph to serve as anti-Israel propaganda.

The doctors removed the bullet, reconstructed his jaw and placed him into an artificial coma for 72 hours. The video has been used by the Zionist press as a mean of propaganda to show the kindness and the courtesy of the soldiers as a contrary to the "violence" of Ahed. "Their goal would be to circulate this footage spreading lies about the IDF, but these soldiers knew what they were trying to achieve and did not budge", they wrote.

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.

Education Minister Naftali Bennett told Army Radio the teen provocateurs should be jailed for life for attacking the soldiers. Numerous videos were shared on Ahed's own Facebook.

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.

Manal says that Nabi Saleh has been raided on a near nightly basis for the past three months.
