Video: Ahed Tamimi and the plight of Palestinian children

Israeli authorities have charged a Palestinian teenager with assault after a video of her hitting and pushing Israeli soldiers went viral.

Ahed Tamimi, 16, and her cousin were filmed in a confrontation with the soldiers that was widely shared by Palestinians on social media.

Ahed’s case has highlighted the issue of the hundreds of Palestinian children under Israeli military detention. Often held without adequate legal representation and on spurious charges meant to intimidate both the child and their families.
