Palestinian teens arrested for assaulting IDF troops, hoping for response on film

Palestinian teens arrested for assaulting IDF troops, hoping for response on film

Ahed Tamimi, a defiant 16-year-old Palestinian who has become well-known for her fierce activism against the Israeli occupation, was detained before dawn Tuesday during an Israeli raid on her home in the occupied West Bank.

"The Palestinian girl was involved in disorderly conduct on Friday in Nabi Salih, when around 200 Palestinians threw rocks towards IDF forces", the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said in a statement.

Two years ago, the family made headlines when an Israeli soldier violently attempted to arrest Nariman's son Muhammad, who had one arm in a cast at the time.

Tamimi, who has been nicknamed "Shirley Temper" for her blonde curls and fearless stance against the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory, was last reported as being questioned by Shin Bet, Israel's internal security service.

"Their village land in Nabi Saleh is being taken for an illegal Israeli settlement, and Israeli soldiers are the agents securing this theft process", Yousef Munayyer, executive director of the U.S. Campaign For Palestinian Rights, told Newsweek.

However, Bassem Tamimi, a prominent activist and father of the detained girl said soldiers had earlier fired tear gas and broken windows at the family's house.

The army said a preliminary investigation into the incident showed the soldiers "acted professionally and were not dragged into violence". The 14-year-old boy is now in a coma. The video of her confrontation with the soldiers was widely shared by pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian activists on the web.

The army had also posted that "It was wrong not to arrest her immediately, because she tried to block the soldiers' mission".

The Tamimi family rushes an Israeli soldier pinning a Mohammed Tamimi, then 12, during a demonstration in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh, near Ramallah, August 28, 2015. 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. One year later, she witnessed the army shoot and kill her uncle Rashadi.

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. Tamimi was later given the Hanzala Courage Award by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, at the time Turkey's prime minister.

YouTube is reportedly launching a music streaming service called Remix
The new service would incorporate certain YouTube elements, including video, in a Spotify-like format. Record label Warner Music Group has already confirmed its participation, the sources said.
