Israel judge orders Palestinian teen in ‘slap video’ held until trial

Ahed Tamimi

OFER MILITARY PRISON, Palestine: An Israeli military judge Wednesday ordered a Palestinian teenager arrested after a viral video showed her hitting two Israeli soldiers held in custody until trial.

“I found no alternative other than to order [Ahed Tamimi’s] detention in custody until the end of proceedings,” the judge ruled. “The gravity of the offences of which she is accused do not allow an alternative to custody.”
