  • 2 Border Policemen Wounded in Capture/Elimination of Jenin Terrorists

Two Israeli soldiers were wounded in the gunfight and one of them is in serious condition, according to the report.

Charges filed on January 1 against Ms Tamimi included aggravated assault, rock-throwing, incitement and participation in "violent riots".

Mr Heeran noted that she was arrested from her home in the middle of the night, interrogated without a relative or lawyer present, and is now held outside the occupied territories in what he said contravenes global humanitarian law.

More protests are expected to erupt in the West Bank region after an Israeli court ordered the continued detention of 16-year-old Palestinian activist Ahed Tamini and her mother until the end of their trial.

Tamimi's 15-year-old cousin survived the gunshot, but his head and face remain badly injured.


Members of the Tamimi family have frequently engaged in confrontations with Israeli soldiers in their West Bank village of Nebi Salah, and the family has emerged as a symbol of the Palestinian resistance against Israel.

The Tamimi family of Nabi Saleh is well known internationally for their activism against the Israeli occupation.

International observers and human rights groups, such as Amnesty International, have called for the young woman's immediate release. "In capturing an unarmed teenage girl's assault on two armed soldiers wearing protective gear, the footage of this incident shows that she posed no actual threat and that her punishment is blatantly disproportionate".

The case has shone a spotlight on what critics say is an unfair military justice system that abuses the rights of Palestinian minors in the West Bank.

In a shootout that ensued, they killed one terrorist and arrested several others.
