12 charges sought against Ahed Tamimi

Israel indicted a 16-year-old Palestinian girl on charges including assault for punching an Israeli soldier in the face two weeks ago.

Israel has held Ahed Tamimi since arresting her three days after she was filmed punching the soldier at the entrance to her family home in a village in the occupied West Bank.

The case has made her into a symbol for Palestinians.

The 12 charge sheet included counts of aggravated assault against a soldier.
