Israel says Ahed Tamimi arrested for ‘inciting terrorism’

Prominent Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi was arrested by Israeli forces during overnight raids in the occupied West Bank for “inciting terrorism”, the Israeli army said.

An army spokesperson told AFP news agency that Tamimi was transferred to Israeli security forces for further questioning.

Tamimi became famous in 2012 for confronting and standing up to an Israeli soldier in defence of her brother. She was also arrested in 2017 after a video of her slapping and hitting two Israeli soldiers outside of her house in the village of Nabi Saleh went viral.
