The remand of 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi's mother, who was arrested on suspicion of assault and incitement, was also extended until Thursday.

Ahed al-Tamimi was taken into custody after Israeli forces raided her home in Nabi Saleh village in the northern West Bank, her father said.

Ahed's father, Bassem Tamimi, wrote on his Facebook page shortly after the raid, stating that IDF forces have arrested his daughter.

Israeli incitement, led by Israeli army leaders and officials to arrest the girl, was, according to Israeli media, was because the general feeling that the Israeli army was humiliated despite the countless crimes committed by the Israeli army against the Palestinians.

Israelis were furious when a video clip showing two young Palestinians girls physically abusing an IDF soldier went viral over the weekend.

Many Israelis have long complained that restrictive rules of engagement permit Palestinian Arabs to molest IDF soldiers with impunity.

Education Minister Naftali Bennett told Army Radio the teen provocateurs should be jailed for life for attacking the soldiers.

Israeli forces raided the home of the al-Tamimi family, well-known internationally for their activism against the Israeli occupation, and detained Ahed al-Tamimi, 17. "The investigation reveals that the commander of the force, who was given operational judgment, acted professionally by not getting dragged into violence". The Israeli soldiers beat the occupants of the house and took the cameras that documented the brutality of the Israeli soldiers during their suppression of the protests in the village over several years.

Then in 2015, a picture of the girl biting the hand of an Israeli soldier trying to arrest her brother became a symbolic photo shared widely around the world.

In a video of the incident, she can be seen repeatedly raising her balled fist at a soldier, poised to hit him but never actually doing so.
