"Whoever goes wild during the day, will be arrested at night". The girl, identified by Hebrew media as 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi, and two other girls were caught on camera Friday slapping and harassing the soldiers in an apparent attempt to provoke a violent response.

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

According to reports, the victim was shot at close range during demonstrations staged in the village of Nabi Saleh in the occupied West Bank. "My daughter was handcuffed and taken into an unknown destination". By 1:30 p.m. she too was detained.

However, Bassem says the Israeli narrative does not tell the full story. Of course, the blocking action costed her the arrest. The family alleged the soldiers beat them during the raid.

Translation: Ahed al-Tamimi, a courageous Palestinian woman, was raised in a family who refused to submit to the Israeli occupation laws; her father was arrested more than nine times, her mom five times, and her brother two times.

U.S. blames North Korea for major cyber attack
Mr Oh was shot and badly wounded by his fellow North Korean soldiers while fleeing across the border into the South last month. Pyongyang has previously denied being responsible for the attack.


However, both rubber and plastic bullets have been causing serious injuries, and even deaths.

Later that afternoon, Tamimi's mother was also arrested after she went to visit her daughter who was being held at a police station near Jabaa village in the Jerusalem district of the West Bank so she could be present during her interrogation, Al Jazeera reports.

Ein al-Qaws had been the village's sole water source for generations. Villagers were denied access to the spring that provided for their community for as long as anyone could remember. Israeli forces used every possible means to suppress the protests, often by stopping the demonstrators while they were still within their village. Rain, holidays and curfews do not stop the people of Nabi Saleh from taking to the side of the hill facing the spring and demanding their land back. The 14-year-old boy is now in a coma.

While the Tamimi clan has garnered various criticisms for allowing the children of Nabi Saleh, from the bold Ahed to the vocal "child journalist", Janna Jihad, the Tamimis have said countless times during radio, print and television interviews that they allow their children to participate, first because violence is simply a reality for Palestinians in the occupied West Bank, and second, they believe keeping their children indoors during the protests fosters fear inside them.

In a short documentary, Ahed said that her dream is to become a football player, describing the difficulty she faces at the Israeli checkpoint when she wants to get to school.
