VIDEO GOES VIRAL OF PALESTINIAN CHILDREN & THEIR MOTHERS FIGHTING OFF AN ISRAELI SOLIDER
In 2015 a video went viral of an Israeli soldier pursuing a young Palestinian boy and pinning him to the ground.
The 12 year old Palestinian child, who's one arm was broken and in a sling, was accused by Israeli soldiers of throwing stones.
However, the Israeli soldier's attempts to arrest the young boy were thwarted by the arrival of his sister, Ahed Tamimi (who is currently on tour in South Africa), as well as other family members including his mother and cousin who fought off the Israeli solider. Click here for the video.
