16-year-old Palestinian girl arrested by Israeli forces

On Tuesday, Israel arrested a 16-year-old Palestinian girl in a night raid in the occupied West Bank.
The Israeli military published images of the detention saying she was brought in for questioning.

Later on Tuesday, police also detained her mother.

The arrest happened after a video was posted online on Friday showing Ahed al-Tamimi, the girl who is now under arrest, pushing an Israeli soldier.

The incident reportedly took place after her cousin was shot in the face and critically injured.

In the past few years, al-Tamimi has appeared in other videos challenging Israeli soldiers.

Joining Al Jazeera to discuss this report from Ramallah is Ayed Abu Eqtaish, the Accountability Director with the Defense for Children Palestine.
