Video Captures Palestinian Girl Attempting to Provoke IDF (VIDEO)

A screenshot from the video.

A video shot at a Friday protest in the village of Nabi Salih, in the central West Bank, captured a striking image: that of a young Palestinian girl attempting to provoke Israeli soldiers. Soon thereafter the girl is joined by many other seemingly young-looking people from the village.

A senior IDF source told Ynet that intelligence indicates that pro-Palestinian activists pay Palestinian children from Nabi Salih and other nearby villages to confront the soldiers. “The soldiers are briefed on the fact that these protests are staged for the sake of provocation, so that they could be filmed acting violently and so that those videos could be distributed worldwide in an effort to harm the IDF’s image,” the officer said.

According to Ynet, Abir Kubati, spokesperson of the popular protest coordination committee, said: “I don’t understand what the army wants – they send soldiers into a Palestinian village and then dare to depict themselves as victims because the residents don’t welcome them.”

“You’re a traitor! I know you speak Arabic. Our soldiers are stronger than you! I’ll smash your head,” the 10-year-old girl is heard in the video screaming at the soldier in Arabic, according to a translation provided by Ynet.

A video of the incident can be viewed below.

  • Children are holy gifts from God. Each is given a pure and innocent soul. The parents of these unhappy children are guilty of a profound and ugly sin. Is this not the worse display of child abuse one can encounter? The ruination of a sweet and innocent soul with hate, anger, and murderous speech is child abuse. Shame on any parent that allows this kind of hate to be even a small part of any child’s life.

    • One of the little girl’s close relatives was taken by these “innocent” and “brave” soldiers. Her parents cannot do anything to “protect” her from the inhumane actions done by the Israeli soldiers. I’m sorry but don’t speak if you do not understand their situation.

  • DACON9 ‘The xtians and the arabs’

    You iz silly bro. You meant the loony left and the Arabs.

  • Irene paynter

    What the hell are the adults thinking to allow these kids to act like that, well done to the actual ADULTS in uniform for showing such restraint, as a parent I would have slapped these kids backsides for putting themselves in a position of potential danger should the soldiers have decided enough was enough, then I would have slapped their parents for letting them act like hooligans.

  • Jerusalem Mom

    Notice all those cameras. WOW! Great education going on over there…

  • daniela lowinger

    I wonder if those girls would have screamed and done the same thing to any Palestinian man, if he would not have smacked them right away.
    Those are the ones that want us to give them a country??? to have those kind of people as neighbors?..

    • Devora Goldhair

      I can’t believe I know someone who posted a comment on one of these sites. Hahahaha, hi Daniella!

  • I wonder how a “soldier” of the PLO or any other Islamic nation would react if some Jewish children were yelling and pushing at them? I’m sure not with the restaint that can be seen in this video. May Hashem continue to be our defense and protect our IDF soldiers.

    • Wow these amazing soldiers! How humane of them to restrain from hurting a child. Yeah let’s award them with the noble peace prize. Smh… society and it’s ignorance.

  • PEACE….
    We Israel are attacked on 2 fronts at the same time.
    The xtians and the arabs.

    Politicians preach peace…
    Arabs practice intimidation and war.

    CAN YOU BE AS SILENT AND BRAVEAS OUR IDF SHOW TO BE IN THIS VIDEO?

    why are the arabs permitted to continue to provoc us?

    silence to the JEWS have proven to be death sentences.

    • The poor Jews…the poor poor Jews. What shall we do to help them?? Oh wait I forgot AMERICA AND EUROPE ARE HELPING THEM AND SUPPORTING THEM TO KILL INNOCENT PALESTINIANS . While the Palestinians have no military help… the poor Jews…

    Unpacking the Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict and Its Ripple Effect on Israel’s Region

    JNS.org – Aside from Israel itself, those with a vested interest in the Jewish state are accustomed to tracking developments related to Middle East players such as Iran, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. But much global attention has recently focused on the Caucasus region at the Europe-Asia border, specifically on the suddenly intensified violence between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the mountainous Nagorno-Karabakh area of western Azerbaijan. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, while not taking place in Israel’s immediate neighborhood, does have what one scholar called […]

    JNS.org – On Friday, April 22, 196 nations across the world mark Earth Day, the annual day dedicated to environmental protection that was enacted in 1970. Not to be forgotten on this day is Israel, which is known as the “start-up nation” for its disproportionate amount of technological innovation, including in the area of protecting the environment. For Earth Day 2016, JNS.org presents a sampling of the Jewish state’s internal achievements and global contributions in the environmental realm. Water conservation Israeli […]

    New Documentary Explores Holocaust Humor, Role That Laughter Played in Death Camps

    Holocaust humor and the role that laughter played in the lives of Jews during World War II are the focus of a documentary that made its world premiere on Monday at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. In The Last Laugh, first- and second-generation survivors, as well as famous Jewish and non-Jewish comedians, discuss their thoughts on when joking about the death camps is appropriate or taboo. “Nazi humor, that’s OK. Holocaust humor, no,” Jewish comedic giant, actor and filmmaker Mel Brooks says in the film. “Anything I […]

    Tragedy Culminates in ‘Celebration,’ Says Israeli Author Who Lost Son to Terror

    JNS.org – Sherri Mandell’s life was devastated on May 8, 2001, when her 13-year-old son Koby was murdered by terrorists on the outskirts of the Israeli Jewish community of Tekoa. Yet Mandell not only shares the story of her loss, but also celebrates the lessons she has learned from tragedy. Indeed, “celebrate” is this Israeli-American author’s word choice. Her second book, The Road to Resilience: From Chaos to Celebration (Toby Press), came out earlier this year. The lesson: in every celebration, there is […]

    JNS.org – Alan Gross used to be nothing more to me than a tragic headline. When I started my position at this news service in July 2011, Gross had been imprisoned in Cuba since December 2009 for what that country called “crimes against the state.” Gross, a subcontractor for the United States Agency for International Development, went to Cuba to help the Jewish community there access the Internet. After his arrest, he received a trial he describes as a “B movie,” […]

    JNS.org – When I saw the recent Academy Award-winning film “The Big Short,” I was struck by the sheer genius of the financiers who devised the schemes and packaged the loans for resale, but it left me with unanswered questions about how the properties these loans represented were moved. “The Big Short” was largely about paper transactions, big money, and wealthy investors, and it mildly touched on the way the actual end-users — the home buyers and brokers — played into this […]

    Psychiatry and the Spirit

    Why do we think so negatively about psychiatrists that we still insult them by calling them shrinks? Some medics might be quacks, but we don’t generally refer to them as witches! Shrinks; The Untold Story of Psychiatry, by Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, is a sobering account of how psychiatry has swung from a marginal, unscientific mixture of weird theories into one of the most common and pervasive forms of treatment of what are commonly called “disorders of the mind.” Is it […]

    At Forbes Summit in Israel, Entrepreneurship Is a ‘Common Language’

    JNS.org – Nine months ago, Seth Cohen, director of network initiatives for the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, and Randall Lane, editor of Forbes Magazine, were schmoozing about the “vibrancy of Tel Aviv and soul of Jerusalem,” as Lane put it. They dreamed about how they could bring young and innovative millennials to the so-called “start-up nation.” From April 3-7, Forbes turned that dream into a reality. Israel played host to the first-ever Forbes Under 30 EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) […]
