The IDF arrested a girl after she assaulted soldiers yesterday in the PA village of Nabi Saleh, in an attempt to provoke a violent reaction for hidden cameras.
The assault, which was caught on video, shows the girl approaching the two soldiers and immediately beginning to strike at them, screaming loudly, and at one point going as far as to slap one of the men across the face.
The soldiers handled the situation calmly, walking away and not allowing the confrontation to escalate. It was later noted that the attack was filmed, leading to the suspicion that the girl’s motive was to capture the soldier hitting back on camera so as to later publicise it as “proof” of the IDF’s violence against Palestinians.
The IDF later arrested the girl. Her mother was detained for questioning as well.
