Here is the girl.




More from the story

Bethlehem, occupied West Bank - Ahed Tamimi, a prominent 16-year-old Palestinian activist, has been detained during a pre-dawn raid on her home by the Israeli army and border police in the occupied West Bank.

Ahed's mother, Nariman, was also arrested on Tuesday afternoon during a visit to Ahed at an Israeli police station.
According to Ahed's father Bassem, the Tamimi family, who are well-known activists in the village of Nabi Saleh, woke up with a shock at about 3am to the noise of Israeli forces banging on their front door and screaming.

Bassem told Al Jazeera that he opened the door for the soldiers, who pushed him aside and trooped into the house.
They forced the family into one of the rooms as they went about rifling through the household contents, throwing clothes and possessions on the floor and leaving behind a mess.

The soldiers then informed the family that Ahed was being arrested, without giving any reasons.

"Nariman was hysterically crying and attempted to hug Ahed, but she was thrown to the ground by the soldiers," he said, referring to Ahed's mother.
Despite Ahed being a constant fixture at Nabi Saleh's protests, this is the first time she has been detained by Israeli forces.

‘We are proud of her’: Palestinian teenagers on the importance of Ahed Tamimi


Bethlehem, occupied West Bank — Ahed Tamimi, a prominent teen activist, turned 17 on Wednesday in Israel’s HaSharon prison, where she has been held for more than a month.

Last month, Israel’s military court in Ofer detention center near Ramallah ruled to keep both Ahed and her mother Nariman in prison until the end of their trials, because they “posed a danger,” Gabi Laski, their lawyer, said.

Ahed, who is facing 12 charges, was arrested from her village of Nabi Saleh in the occupied West Bank after a video of her slapping and hitting two Israeli officials outside her home went viral.

Shortly before the video was filmed, Israeli forces had shot Ahed’s 15-year-old cousin point-blank in the face with a rubber bullet, leaving him in a 72-hour coma.

Since Ahed’s arrest, she has become an international icon for the experiences of Palestinian children under Israel’s more than half-century occupation. Demonstrations have been held for the imprisoned teen in various countries around the world.

"The question isn't who wouldn't slap a soldier - but who would slap a soldier? Nobody on Earth except for Palestinians,
who can act with such impunity because they know, first hand, that Israeli soldiers do not target civilians even when provoked."
