Human rights groups criticise detention of minor arrested after viral video showed her hitting Israeli soldiers
An Israeli military judge has ordered the Palestinian teenager Ahed Tamimi to be held in custody during her trial, possibly for months, despite calls from rights groups for her release.
Ahed was arrested last month after a viral video showed her hitting two Israeli soldiers. The teenager’s mother has also been ordered to be held until the trial in the high-profile case that has put the family at the centre of a propaganda war between Israelis and Palestinians.
