Tamimi family and IDF spar over truth in teen's skull injury
Mar 01, 2018, 01:31
The December incident has been at the centre of the case against 17-year-old Ahed Tamimi, who was arrested after a video of her slapping Israeli soldiers went viral.
There are altogether 20 Palestinians arrested during the raids, including minors and an injured boy.
Tamimi's father claimed in the media that his son was hit in the skull by a rubber bullet during clashes that broke out in the village of Nabi Saleh and that, as such, the doctors had to amputate part of his skull to remove the bullet.
Ahed has said in court she was angry over her cousin being shot by soldiers hours earlier, but on Monday, Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) Major General Yoav Mordechai contested that claim, after Mohammed and eight others were arrested in an IDF raid of the West Bank town of Nebi Saleh early Monday morning.
Ahed Tamimi, who was 16 on the day of her arrest when she was pulled out of her bed in the middle of the night, is still awaiting trial. What began as a far-fetched claim we are not a real family has descended into an attempt to deny documented reality. Last night he was arrested by Israeli soldiers. "I could not keep quiet and I responded as I did", Tamimi testified.
Another member of the extended Tamimi family in Nabi Saleh, Bilal, recorded video during the overnight raid on the village which showed the occupation forces spraying parts of the town with foul-smelling liquid meant to be used to disperse crowds.
Updated: Tuesday, Feb. 27, 5:54 a.m. EST The headline and text of this post were updated to report the Israeli military's new claim that Mohammed Tamimi was not shot by one of its soldiers during a demonstration in December.
Tamimi's head injury is thought to have been the catalyst for Ahed's actions.
