Incredible restraint shown by Israeli soldiers despite slaps, kicks and assaults

Look at the video above and check out the incredible restraint shown by the Israeli soldiers. These girls slap and kick the soldiers trying to provoke an incident. It is wrong on so many levels.

The army arrested a second Palestinian girl from the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh early Wednesday morning, in connection with an incident last week in which she and her cousin filmed themselves hitting and harassing soldiers outside their house.

The arrest of 21-year-old Nour Tamimi came a day after the arrest of her teenage cousin, Ahed.

In the video, which was widely shared on social media on Monday, Nour can be seen wearing a black jacket and hitting and shoving one of the soldiers, while Ahed slaps and kicks them. The soldiers did not react.

Also overnight, the army led a group of some 500 Jewish worshipers to the Joseph’s Tomb holy site in the northern West Bank city of Nablus.\

During the visit, local residents clashed violently with the troops, throwing rocks and burning tires, the army said. The soldiers responded with mostly nonlethal riot dispersal weapons, like tear gas, stun grenades and rubber bullets. There were also live shots fired.

Palestinian media reported that three people were shot and injured. The army said it was familiar with the reports, but would not confirm them.

Three of the Palestinians who took part in the riot were arrested, the army added.

Elsewhere in the West Bank, Israeli security forces arrested 13 other Palestinian suspects before dawn on Wednesday, the army said.

The IDF has to put up with a lot, this video shows that.
