Israeli Army Detains 10 Palestinians, Including Teen Cousin of Soldier-slapping Ahed Tamimi

Palestinian residents of a West Bank village say that the Israeli army conducted a raid early on Monday in which they arrested 10 Palestinians, including five minors. One of those detained is Mohammed Tamimi, the 15-year-old cousin of Ahed Tamimi.

The military confirmed Tamimi was arrested overnight and has been released after being interrogated by the police. His arrest was approved by a military physician, the army added.

Residents of Nabi Saleh believe that the motive for the raid was vengeance on the village and the Tamimi family. 

Ahed Tamimi is the Palestinian teen who is currently standing trial for slapping an Israeli solider on film. She has since become a global symbol of the Palestinian resistance movement.
