How a Palestinian teen's rubber bullet injury turned to a biking accident overnight
Ahed Tamimi is on trial over the scuffle in the village of Nabi Saleh, with her case gathering global attention. His teenage cousin, Ahed Tamimi, known for spreading anti-Israel propaganda through "Pallywood" clips, was arrested in December after being filmed assaulting an IDF officer; she now faces charges in a military court, where she claims she was reacting to the violence afflicted on Mohammed.
There are altogether 20 Palestinians arrested during the raids, including minors and an injured boy.
The teen, Mohammed, had part of his skull removed by surgeons on December 15.
The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, Major General Yoav Mordechai, revealed on Monday evening the truth behind the injury to Palestinian Arab teen Mohammed Tamimi last December.
Ahed Tamimi was arrested four days after the confrontation, and Israeli forces stormed her home again. He was released upon interrogation by the police, the military confirmed. She had heard that Israeli soldiers shot her cousin just minutes before. Tamimi was seriously injured on December 15, 2017 when he was struck in the head by a rubber bullet fired by an Israeli soldier. "I could not keep quiet and I responded as I did", Tamimi testified.
The "cynical exploitation" of this situation by a major-general in the IDF only shows how far the Israeli authorities are willing to go to harm the Tamimi family, she said.
"What began with a far-fetched attempt to claim that we are not a real family at all has now moved to the denial of documented reality", a statement released by the family read, referring to revelations last month that an Israeli committee conducted secret investigations into whether the Tamimis were "real".
Ahed is famous across Palestine and the Arab world for videos of her, since her childhood, defiantly resisting Israeli soldiers who clash with Palestinians in her village almost every week.
The Palestinian Prisoner's Society (PPS) said in a statement that Israeli forces detained 10 members of the Tamimi family from the central occupied West Bank villages of Deir Nitham and Nabi Saleh.
The family of Muhammad Tamimi, who lost a third of his skull after being attacked by Israeli soldiers past year, have proven wrong Israeli officials who accused them of inventing the story, according to the Times of Israel. A response from his family was also added, along with his medical records.

Hazard out to shine against Messi
Lewandowski was free after a mistake from Besiktas captain Atiba Hutchinson and Vida had few options other than to bring him down. Given that Chelsea are hosting Barca in the Champions League this week, we felt it would be fitting to test your knowledge.
Woods tackles PGA National with Masters on his mind
A par 3, then a par 4 and another par 3, each tee shot demands a supremely accurate shot to a very narrow landing area. Nicklaus is the only player to win the tournament in consecutive tries, having accomplished the feat in 1977 and 1978.
