Israeli Forces Detain Palestinian Mother Hours After Arresting Teenage Daughter

"The IOF raided my home and arrested my daughter Ahed Tamimi after the Israeli media attacked her after she stopped the soldier in front of our house when he shot a child in the head".

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

Tamimi was arrested a day after a video of her slapping two Israeli occupation soldiers in a West Bank village went viral.

Shot on Friday, the video shows the suspect Ahed Tamimi and another Palestinian teen approaching two Israeli soldiers - then shoving, kicking and slapping them while the soldiers remained relatively impassive before moving backwards.

Israeli forces also confiscated computers, mobile phones and cameras from the house during the raid.

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

The arrest took place during a raid on the Tamimi home on Monday night.
