Israeli Forces Detain Palestinian Mother Hours After Arresting Teenage Daughter

Avigdor Liberman Israeli Forces Detain Palestinian Mother Hours After Arresting Teenage Daughter

Female Border Police and Israeli soldiers took 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi from her home in Nabi Saleh, near occupied Ramallah, and was taken to be questioned, the army said in a statement.

At age 13, Ahed won the Handala Courage Award in Turkey, and rose to global prominence after a video and series of photos were published of the young activist and her mother and aunt desperately attempting to save her injured brother Mohammad, then 11-years old, from being arrested by Israeli forces in 2015.

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 courageous young activist standing up to IOF soldiers went viral on social media, amassing millions of views.

Ahed Bassem al-Tamimi was seized at dawn when Israeli soldiers raided her family house and searched it, taking personal laptops, mobile phones and electronic equipment belonging to the al-Tamimi family.

In 2012, 13-year-old Ahed gained fame among Palestinian activists for an incident in which she led a group of children, including her younger brother, in arguing with Israeli soldiers.

Manal Tamimi, Ahed's cousin, told Al Jazeera that clashes broke out in the village during the raid, with Israeli forces shooting tear-gas canisters at homes in the village.

The military said an investigation had determined that an infantry company commander was one of the two soldiers shown being confronted in the video, and that he had "conducted himself professionally by not responding in kind". Tonight, soldiers raided Nabi Saleh and arrested Ahed Tamimi.

Right wing Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett said "these girls should be imprisoned and spend the rest of their lives in prison".

She started attending the protests there when she was just nine years old.

After the video was aired, which had generated wide worldwide support for Ahd, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan invited her to visit Ankara and he bestowed a medal on her.

The 14-year-old boy, who protested against Trump's announcement of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, was placed into a medically-induced coma.

Mohammed Tamimi was shot at close range in the village of Nabi Saleh in the occupied West Bank on Friday, according to witnesses.

"They didn't give a reason for her arrest", he told AFP. That is precisely what didn't happen this week, and it is what disrupted all of the rules of the game, so much so that Channel 2 commentator Roni Daniel said Monday that he is unperturbed by the possibility that soldiers might be caught on camera beating the girls who disrespected them. Both her uncles were martyrs.

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