Palestinian teen arrested after video showing her slapping Israeli soldier went viral

A Druze soldier attacked and beaten by other soldiers is seen at hospital

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

The video, filmed amid ongoing protests last Friday, shows Tamimi along with two other women, telling two armed Israeli soldiers to remove themselves from her property.

Tamimi has stood up against Israeli aggression multiple times in the past, attending protests and preventing soldiers from arresting a 12-year-old boy in her hometown of Nabi Saleh in 2015.

According to Tamimi's father, Bassem, Israeli troops confiscated cellphones, laptops, and cameras from the family home.

Israeli incitement, led by Israeli army leaders and officials to arrest the girl, was, according to Israeli media, was because the general feeling that the Israeli army was humiliated despite the countless crimes committed by the Israeli army against the Palestinians.

"This is what Israeli soldiers have to go through", The Israel Project captioned the footage.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman hailed the IDF as the "most humane army that exhibits moral values that do not exist elsewhere".

The Israeli army spokesman said that the "commander acted professionally by not being dragged into violence".

"The soldiers didn't respond", it added. It is known among pro-Palestinian activists for the weekly march, since 2010, against the Israeli confiscation of village lands.

The Tamimi family made headlines in 2012, when "Shirley Temper" was filmed shaking her fist and stamping her feet at an Israeli soldier following the arrest of her brother, the Daily Sabah reported.

The occupation forces said the Female Border Police and Israeli army soldiers removed 16-year-old Ahed Tamimi from her home in Nabi Saleh, near Ramallah, and she was brought in for questioning.

Though the video has been hailed by Tamimi's supporters as a courageous act in the struggle of the Palestinian people, the viral video has also been used by pro-Israel voices who instead saw the clash as a display of "IDF restraint and professionalism", the Post reported.
