More often than not, those directly confronting the soldiers are Palestinian children, and the Israelis' standard refusal to take the bait negates the common narrative of the IDF being "child-killers", which is why such incidents rarely receive media coverage.

A second video showed the girls asking the soldiers to move, since they were blocking the steps to a family home in the village of Nabi Saleh in the West Bank.

A 17-year-old girl who was filmed hitting Israeli soldiers with a group of other girls during a protest in the occupied West Bank region has been detained by security forces.

A 16-year-old Palestinian girl was arrested early this morning after a video of her telling Israeli soldiers to leave her property went viral, according to Haaretz.

Since news broke of Tamimi's arrest, netizens have reacted and launched a social media campaign under the hashtag, #FreeAhedTamimi, in the hopes of pressuring Israeli officials to release her from custody.

However, Swann's temper got the best of him and he put his own wife in a headlock and forced her inside of his auto . Swan chased after Yung and yelled for her to return to the auto , but she refused and began to walk away.

Ahed Bassem al-Tamimi was seized at dawn when Israeli soldiers raided her family house and searched it, taking personal laptops, mobile phones and electronic equipment belonging to the al-Tamimi family. However, the servicemen did not oblige the girls, and refrained from retaliating throughout the encounter.

The primary instigator has been identified as 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi, who has in recent years made a name for herself in multiple videotaped provocations of Israeli soldiers. The soldiers remained in their place initially and did not respond. It is known among pro-Palestinian activists for the weekly march, since 2010, against the Israeli confiscation of village lands.

Though the video has been hailed by Tamimi's supporters as a fearless act in the struggle of the Palestinian people, the viral video has also been used by pro-Israel voices who instead saw the clash as a display of "IDF restraint and professionalism", the Post reported.

In 2012, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan sat down for breakfast with Ahed who won the Turkish Handala Courage Award for challenging the Israeli troops in her village.
