Israeli forces abducted a young Palestinian woman from her bed in the early hours of Wednesday, in the village of Nabi Saleh, Ramallah, in the occupied West Bank.

Noor Tamimi was taken following the abduction of Ahed Tamimi, a 16-year-old Palestinian activist, along with her mother on Tuesday.

The Al-Tamimi women were targeted after a video went viral, showing Ahed and her cousin slapping and hitting Israeli soldiers who were trying to break into the family’s home.

Earlier on Friday, demonstrations took place in the village of Nabi Saleh after Mohammed, Ahed’s, cousin was shot in the face with a rubber bullet.

The Israeli spokesperson reportedly said the girls should have been handcuffed on the spot.

The Israeli Border Police also said Ahed Tamimi is currently being questioned by police over suspected assault charges, according to the Times of Israel.

It claimed that she took part in a “violent riot” in Nabi Saleh’s demonstration on Friday.

No charges have been filed against Ahed and her relatives, according to the International Middle East Media center (IMEMC).

The Palestinian Information Center, said Ahed al-Tamimi appeared in military court today, while her detention period was extended for ten more days.

Basem al-Tamimi, Ahed’s father was also reportedly arrested today.

Ahed Tamimi is a member of a famous activist family from Nabi Saleh Village, which holds almost weekly protests against Israel, well-known for her heroic stands against Israeli military forces.
