After she was filmed slapping an IDF soldier at the Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh and was arrested last month, Ahed Tamimi was indicted in a military court hearing on Monday for attacking security forces. She was also indicted for five other incidents involving Israeli security forces, including throwing stones, making threats and disturbing soldiers while they were on duty.
An indictment was also filed against Ahed’s mother, Nariman Tamimi, for her involvement in the same filmed attack and in another incident from December. Nariman was also indicted of incitement to terror through posts on Facebook. Ahed’s cousin, Noor, was arrested for involvement in the filmed incident. The prosecution requested to extend the mother and daughter’s arrest until the conclusion of the proceedings
