When Ahd was a child, a video was posted in November 2012 by photographer Samer Nazal of Ahd going after Israeli soldiers who arrested her brother during confrontations in the village, demanding that he be returned and released.

The remand of 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi's mother, who was arrested on suspicion of assault and incitement, was also extended until Thursday.

"She was arrested on suspicion of attacking Israeli soldiers during the riots", it said.

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.

The goal: to win back some of the army's masculinity, wounded a few days after a video surfaced of the rebellious girl attempting push soldiers out of her house - cursing and shoving them, even kicking and slapping.

Israeli forces on Tuesday detained a 16-year-old Palestinian girl during an overnight raid in the occupied West Bank.

No break for the kid-targeted repressive operation of the Israeli forces.

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

According to Palestinian official figures, more than 6,400 Palestinians are now held in detention facilities throughout Israel.

Mohammad had to be put under a medically induced coma, from which he woke up on Tuesday, 72 hours later.

Before long, Bassem received a phone call from his lawyer, saying that Nariman too been arrested upon her arrival at the police station.

After Israelis Eitam and Na'ama Henkin were murdered in front of their four young children, Manal Tamimi tweeted, "all settlers in West Bank should stay at their house, Pal lions still free & can reach u & kill you where ever u r".

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.

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

"Ahed was telling the soldiers to get away from our home", her father said.

Educating people on social networking is a national and family necessity, according to Abu al-Rub, and some people were arrested after their faces were exposed at contact points after the publication of videos or pictures of the confrontations. The 14-year-old boy is now in a coma. "This is an important message", Liberman said.
