Israeli Soldiers Arrest 10 Members of Ahed Tamimi’s Family, Including Cousin Shot by IDF

HeadlineFeb 27, 2018

In the Israeli-occupied West Bank, Israeli soldiers raided the village of Nabi Saleh and arrested 10 members of the prominent activist family, the Tamimis, including 15-year-old Muhammad Tamimi, who was previously shot in the face by Israeli soldiers. The Tamimi family has gained international attention after a video went viral of Muhammad’s 17-year-old cousin Ahed Tamimi slapping an Israeli soldier after learning her cousin had been shot in the face. He is scheduled to have reconstructive surgery on his skull next week. Ahed has been held in an Israeli military prison for months and is currently facing a dozen charges in a military courtroom.
