Palestinian teen filmed slapping and kicking Israeli soldiers is arrested

The girls filmed their confrontation of the soldiers with cellphones.

The video shows the two Israeli soldiers maintaining their composure while taking multiple blows, before slowly slinking away from the scene.

A 17-year-old girl who was filmed hitting Israeli soldiers with a group of other girls during a protest in the occupied West Bank region has been detained by security forces. However, the servicemen did not oblige the girls, and refrained from retaliating throughout the encounter.

"A large Israeli force raided our house at dawn and arrested Ahed while she was sleeping in her bed", Basem Tamimi, Ahed's father, told the Anadolu Agency.

The Israeli army said in a statement the Palestinian girl was arrested for participating in "violent riots" in her village.

Charles Leclerc will make his Formula 1 debut next season after being confirmed alongside Marcus Ericsson in Sauber's line-up. The Italian auto manufacturer is making a return to the sport after 30-years to sponsor the team.

Many Israelis have long complained that restrictive rules of engagement permit Palestinian Arabs to molest IDF soldiers with impunity. The soldiers remained impassive, without responding to the provocation.

Tamimi's mother was also arrested, and while Israeli police gave no reason for her detention, they did confirm that the pair would be in jail until at least Thursday.

The al-Tamimi family is well-known internationally for their activism against the Israeli occupation, with Ahed in particular being the subject of several viral videos in which she defiantly stands up to Israeli soldiers who regularly raid her village in the central West Bank Ramallah district.

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. The video of her confrontation with the soldiers was widely shared by pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian activists on the web.

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