More luridly, Ben Caspit, a prominent journalist, made a rather shocking assertion of how Ahed's type of defiant behavior shockingly deserves to be addressed outside the framework of law: "In the case of girls, we should exact a price at some other opportunity, in the dark without witnesses or cameras". As he recalled, the Palestinian teenager was arrested in the middle of the night by well-armed soldiers, and then questioned by Israeli security agents without family members or lawyers present. NPR's Daniel Estrin has this report.
Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad al-Maliki said that Palestinian powers were seeking several frameworks of action to confront the repercussions of the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the ongoing Israeli escalation.
Rights groups say they also hope the trial will shed light on Israels treatment of minors.
ESTRIN: Get out of here, Tamimi says. Failing that, they took her unloaded M16 assault rifle. One of them tries to swat her away. It was revealed later that the Palestinian girl was upset after soldiers had shot her 14-year-old cousin in the face a day earlier.
Writing in Israel's best-selling daily newspaper, Yediot Ahronot, columnist Shlomo Pyutrekovsky accused the government of responding too weakly to such incidents, and thereby putting the lives of our young soldiers at even greater risk.
The incident was streamed live on Facebook by her mother and went viral.
UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER #1: (Foreign language spoken). The court has ruled that she should remain in detention until the end of her trial.
ESTRIN: She's been confronting soldiers throughout her childhood.
It said her "continued detention is a desperate attempt to intimidate Palestinian children who dare to stand up to repression by occupying forces". Now his daughter's supporters around the world have started an online campaign - Free Ahed Tamimi.
The video continues with her leaning against the courtyard wall, calling for large demonstrations as "the only way to reach results", but adding that Trump must bear responsibility for any Palestinian reaction, including stabbings and suicide attacks, and that "everyone needs to do something and to unite".
ESTRIN: Some see her as an example of the issue of Palestinian juveniles detained by Israel - hundreds a year, according to human rights advocates. He acknowledges the inquiry found no proof. Her arrest has given her even more global attention.
ESTRIN: Ahed Tamimi's been in jail since December.
In related news, the soldiers searched many homes in Hebron city, in southern West Bank, and abducted Wajdi Rajabi, and Amir Nidal Fakhouri, 17. "The Israeli authorities must release her without delay".
If convicted, she could face a lengthy jail term.
Already a poster child for the Palestinian cause, her arrest has propelled her to new levels of fame.
The armed forces are getting bold enough to challenge aerial violations by their opponents, no matter how powerful they are. Sirens sounded in northern Israel because of the missiles fired at Israeli jets, and the attack was over just before 9 a.m.

Cuerpos policiales del estado Zulia informaron que fue rescatada Ana Soto , madre del jugador de las Grandes Ligas , Elias Díaz . La madre del receptor venezolano de los Piratas de Pittburgh, Elias Díez, ha sido secuestrada en su país.
She said: "I find arrest is a proportionate response even though Mr Assange has restricted his own freedom for a number of years". After the ruling, Assange claimed there were "significant factual errors in the judgment" and suggested he might appeal.
El local se puso en ventaja con un penal (mano de Damián Schmidt) que Pulguita se encargó de ejecutar con precisión. El Verdinegro perdió por 2-1 ante Atlético Tucumán y sumó un nuevo capítulo por la senda de la derrota.
According to Attorney Gaby Lasky, who is representing Ahed, the best defense would be to open the trial to public scrutiny. The video shows the cousins approaching two soldiers and telling them to leave before shoving, kicking and slapping them.
