Israel arrests the brother of the icon of Palestinian protest
RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) – The family of the Palestinian protester Ahed Tamimi says his younger brother was arrested in his house in the occupied West Bank.
His father, Bassem Tamimi, says the soldiers broke up early in the morning and arrested 15-year-old Mohammed. He says Mohammed broke his arm during the weekend running tear gas during the protests in his village and suspected that he was arrested for throwing stones to Israeli soldiers.
The military said they arrested 21 Palestinians during the night for riots and other riots without providing more details.
Ahed Tamimi served eight months in an Israeli prison for striking two Israeli soldiers in an incident captured in the film that made her a symbol of the Palestinian opposition to the Israeli military government. In a video taken from the arrest of his brother, she shouts: "Stop, or I'll hit you."
