The arrest came in the wake of an incident, in which Ahed Tamimi, 17, and another teenager were seen on a video footage slapping and kicking two heavily-armed Israeli soldiers in the Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh in the central West Bank.

Earlier on Tuesday, the occupying state's Minister of Education, Naftali Bennet, also spoke against Tamimi.

A quick Google of the Ahed's name brings up pages of images of her growing up over the years - a red-faced girl with wild blonde curls fearlessly screaming and chanting with rage directly in front of Israeli soldiers.

The army had also posted that "It was wrong not to arrest her immediately, because she tried to block the soldiers' mission".

"Six soldiers pushed him down and violently took it from him", he said.

Manal Tamimi, Ahed's cousin, told Al Jazeera that clashes broke out in the village during the raid, with Israeli forces shooting tear-gas canisters at homes in the village.

The mother of a Palestinian teenage girl, who was detained from her home by Israeli forces before dawn on Tuesday, was reportedly detained at an Israeli police station when seeking information about her daughter's whereabouts. Her arrest is not so surprising to anyone familiar with the Tamimis. And they continue to pay the price for their refusal to accept the status quo, for their steadfast challenge to mechanisms of the occupation.

He said at least 30 soldiers were involved in the raid and arrest.

The Israeli army posted on its Twitter account a video showing Ahed being arrested.

Educating people on social networking is a national and family necessity, according to Abu al-Rub, and some people were arrested after their faces were exposed at contact points after the publication of videos or pictures of the confrontations.

"His situation is very bad", she said.

The group condemned Israel's night raids on Palestinian communities, calling the policy "particularly gruesome" and a means of "subjugating and suppressing the [Palestinian] population".

This is "part and parcel of wider Israeli policies that must exist for [Israel] to continue foreign domination and the colonisation of Palestine", Badil said.
