Israeli military court extended on Tuesday the detention of Palestinian teenager، Ahed al-Tamimi who was arrested after a video of her confronting and hitting Israeli soldiers went viral.
Ahed was arrested after she and her cousin Nour attempted to remove two Israeli soldiers from the family’s property after a soldier shot another cousin، 15-year-old Muhammad Fadel Tamimi، in the head causing him serious injuries.
Ahed was seen in a video filmed by her mother، Nariman، slapping and shoving one of the heavily armed men.
The Israeli military filed 12 charges against Ahed on 1 January.
If convicted on charges that include throwing stones، incitement and assaulting and threatening a soldier، the 16-year-old could remain in Israeli prisons for years.
In a video from Ahed’s hearing، a reporter asks Ahed if she is proud of what she did، to which she replies smiling that she is.
Ahed’s mother Nariman is facing charges of “incitement” for livestreaming the incident with the soldiers.
