Tamimi family and IDF spar over truth in teen's skull injury

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.

Among the detainees was 15-year-old Muhammad Tamimi, who is scheduled to have reconstructive surgery on his skull on March 5th.

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.

Israeli lawyer Gaby Lasky (C-L) speaks with her client sixteen-years-old Ahed Tamimi (2R) before she stands for a hearing in the military court at Ofer military prison in the West Bank village of Betunia on January 1, 2018.

Ahed is famous across Palestine and the Arab world for videos of her, since her childhood, defiantly resisting Israeli soldiers who clash with Palestinians in her village almost every week. A response from his family was also added, along with his medical records.
