She had heard that Israeli soldiers shot her cousin just minutes before.

"״Israel arrested an injured, post-traumatic 15-year-old in the middle of the night and got him to lie out of fear of being sent to prison in his condition", their statement said.

His father reportedly pleaded with soldiers who came to arrest him, allegedly for taking part in a protest, but Israeli medics found him "fit for custody".

Hours after Mohammed's release, Mordechai posted on Facebook that the 15-year-old had admitted to interrogators that he had sustained his head injury from falling off of his bike and hitting his head on the handlebars.

Ahed Tamimi, Mohammed's cousin, was arrested in December after a video of her "provoking" Israeli soldiers went viral.

The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, Major General Yoav Mordechai, revealed on Monday evening the truth behind the injury to Palestinian Arab teen Mohammed Tamimi last December. "I could not keep quiet and I responded as I did".

"Every global institution that deals with the Palestinians and human rights issues are responsible for the lives of our children and for the suffering of the Tamimi family and Nabi Saleh village", Bassem said. Many Palestinians see her as bravely standing up to military control over the West Bank, while Israelis accuse her family of using her as a pawn in staged provocations.

After spending days in a coma and undergoing several life-saving surgeries, Muhammad - who has been injured by Israeli forces before, and was previously detained when he was 13 - was released back home to Nabi Saleh with half of his skull missing.

Lasky called on the IDF to release Ahed Tamimi from jail, adding that, "it's clear now, if it hadn't been already, that this military establishment can not mete out justice in Ahed's case".

Ahed was arrested in the midnight from her house.
