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…

    Filmmaker Eyal Resh Embraces the Challenge of Telling Israel’s Story (VIDEO)

    JNS.org – Telling Israel’s story. It’s the specific title of a short film that Eyal Resh created last year. It’s also the theme behind the 27-year-old Israeli filmmaker’s broader body of work. The widely viewed “Telling Israel’s Story” film—directed by Resh for a gala event hosted by the Times of Israel online news outlet—seemingly begins as a promotional tourism video, but quickly evolves to offer a multilayered perspective. “I want to tell you a story about a special place for me,” a young woman whispers […]

This particular dragon was designed by students from Moscow’s Art Industrial Institute in conjunction with the Flacon design factory, said Anatasia Shaminer, a student who helped facilitate the display.

    The Syrian Virgin (REVIEW)

    The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love. CreateSpace, 2015. The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love, is a very interesting novel. Equally a political and romantic thriller, at times a real page-turner, it gets you intimately involved in the dire situation in today’s Syria, as well as in the romantic entanglements of its mostly New York-based characters — whose entanglements just might determine the fate of that dire situation in Syria. Along the way it introduces a really important idea that somehow […]

    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 – 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.
