IDF and Border Police forces arrested a Palestinian woman from Nabil Salih overnight Monday after a video emerged of a group of women provoking IDF soldiers in the town last week.

In the video, Palestinian women appear to push, kick and try to slap the soldiers, who refrain from reacting to the provocation. The attack occurred at the same time as widespread disorder in the town, in which 200 Palestinians threw rocks at IDF forces.

An initial investigation into the incident described the IDF officer's conduct as "professional" but added that the women should have been arrested at the scene on the grounds of violent conduct and obstructing the IDF's ability to carry out its mission.
