Israel arrests family of detained Palestinian teen

Detroit protest demands freedom for Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi

Mohammed Tamimi, a 15-year-old Palestinian seriously wounded by a rubber bullet in December who is a cousin to activist * a href="*/stories/190194" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener" *Ahed Tamimi, was released following a raid conducted by the Israeli army in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh on February 26.

Mohammed required an "intensive surgery, where part of his skull was removed, in order to dislodge the rubber bullet", Amnesty International had reported.

He was questioned under caution by Israel Police for his participation in a "violent riot" and released hours later, the spokeswoman said.

The arrest and prosecution of Ahed Tamimi, for the slap she says was motivated by anger over the shooting of her cousin Mohammed, has created a public relations crisis for Israel, since it has been widely condemned internationally, including by prominent entertainers like the American comedian Sarah Silverman.

Tamimi was among 16 terror suspects arrested overnight Sunday in Nabi Saleh in Samaria.

As Ahed and her mother Nariman - who was arrested after her daughter - are being prosecuted behind closed doors, global rights groups such as Amnesty worldwide have called for their immediate release, saying that Ahed's detention "is a desperate attempt to intimidate Palestinian children who dare to stand up to repression by occupying forces".

Ahed Tamimi has been charged with 12 counts including assault and could face a lengthy jail term if convicted.

The film is setting records and inspiring people of all ages by showcasing a mostly black cast with a black director. Judging by the box office, you've either already seen this movie or you plan to, so I won't recount the plot here.

The Tamimi family statement also noted that this attempt to deny that Mohammed had been shot by an Israeli soldier followed a freakish claim from another senior Israeli official who argued that Ahed and her cousins were unrelated actors only pretending to be oppressed by Israel.

Lasky said she has not seen Muhammad's confession but said the teen was suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder related to the shooting and appears to have referenced a bicycle accident to ensure that he would be released.

Currently, Ahed Tamimi and her mother Nariman Tamimi, 42, were still in custody and undergoing military court trials. She did not even receive food properly.

According to prisoners rights group Addameer, as of January 2018, there were 330 Palestinian children being held in Israeli prison.

It may be noted that she was arrested from West Bank and taken into occupied territory which is the violation of global laws.
