Israeli forces Monday detained 10 members of the extended Tamimi family during wide-scale raid and inspection operations in the village of Nabi Saleh, northwest of the city of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank, according to Palestinian security sources.

In testimony to an Israeli military court in December, then-16-year-old Ahed Tamimi reportedly said that she thought that the soldier she had slapped had also been responsible for shooting her cousin.

There are altogether 20 Palestinians arrested during the raids, including minors and an injured boy.

He had been hit a day before the row between Ahed and the soldiers, which seems to have resulted in her emotional outburst against the soldiers.

"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", the statement read.

Two years ago, her family made headlines when an Israeli soldier violently attempted to arrest her younger brother, who had one arm in a cast at the time. "I could not keep quiet and I responded as I did".

Mohammad Tamimi, 15, who was shot in the head by Israeli soldiers in December, and still needs surgery to reconstruct his skull.

Another member of the extended Tamimi family in Nabi Saleh, Bilal, recorded video during the overnight raid on the village which showed the occupation forces spraying parts of the town with foul-smelling liquid meant to be used to disperse crowds.

Citing an article in which Muhammad's father Fadel described how his son took a rubber bullet to the skull while witnessing December clashes with IDF soldiers, Mordechai blasted the Tamimi family as a group of con-artists.

It was then that Ahed was filmed kicking and slapping an armed Israeli soldier who had encroached on her family's property - an incident she would be detained for days later, along with her mother and cousin.

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.

Seventeen-year-old Palestinian Ahed Tamimi (R), a well-known campaigner against Israel's occupation, arrives for the beginning of her trial in the Israeli military court at Ofer military prison in the West Bank village of Betunia on February 13, 2018. A response from his family was also added, along with his medical records.
