Ahed Tamimi, a prominent 16-year-old Palestinian activist, has been detained during a pre-dawn raid on her home by the Israeli army and border police in the occupied West Bank.

According to Ahed's father Bassem, the Tamimi family, who are well-known activists in the village of Nabi Saleh, woke up with a shock at about 3am to the noise of Israeli forces banging on their front door and screaming.

Ahed was handcuffed and led by the soldiers outside to an Israeli army jeep. The family was prevented from following her outside.

According to Bassem, at least 30 soldiers were involved in the raid and Ahed's arrest.

The excessive use of force serves no purpose, and Ahed should be released immedately.
