Singapore Bans Film on Teen Palestinian Resister for Lacking Pro-Israeli 'Balance'

A Palestinian hospital official said a teenager was killed in rioting when Israeli troops fired at an armed protester.

The Addameer rights group says about 6,150 Palestinians are now in Israeli jails, including around 450 in administrative detention.

Israel indicted a 16-year-old Palestinian girl on Monday on charges including assault for punching an Israeli soldier in the face two weeks ago, an incident which made her into a hero for Palestinians and was seen as humiliating by right-wing Israelis.

As Jaclynn Ashly pointed out in an Al Jazeera article in September 2017, "Ahed Tamimi was just 14 when she rose to worldwide prominence through the release of a video and a series of photos capturing her desperate attempts to save her 11-year-old brother, Mohammad, from the grips of an Israeli soldier in 2015".

Tamimi was arrested for the assault, along with her mother and 21-year-old cousin Nour, both of whom were also involved in the attack, which was filmed and streamed live on Facebook. The indictment covers six different incidents in recent months in which she got into altercations with Israeli soldiers, including the December 15, 2017 incident that was captured on video.

Musab Firas al-Tamimi, 17, was shot dead in the village of Deir Nizam north of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank Wednesday.

"Since Ahed became kind of a symbol of resistance, they wanted to find a way to keep her in detention for a long period of time", she told AFP.

Palestinians say she is engaged in legitimate resistance against Israel's 50-year occupation of the West Bank.

Mr Oren earlier defended the Israeli government's decision to try Ahed in a military court, despite her being unarmed and a minor. Furthermore, documents have been stolen by the security forces, it is alleged. The video appears to have been filmed next to the Tamimi house in Nabi Saleh near Ramallah.

"I am very anxious about my daughter", added Bassem, who has also been arrested numerous times by Israeli forces. There are hundreds of Palestinian children jailed by Israel and frequently subject to beatings, abuse, and interrogations without parents or lawyers present in violation of the law.
