Earlier in January, Ahed was indicted on 12 charges, including alleged assault, "incitement" and past instances of stone-throwing.
Remand in custody - even of minors - is part of the routine of oppression that Israel employs against Palestinians, with the full backing of the military courts, a system in which both judges and prosecutors are always military personnel, the defendants always Palestinian, and the conviction rate nearly 100%.
The two soldiers Ahed Tamimi attacked wore helmets and combat gear and tried to deflect her blows, but remained largely passive during the incident, which occurred in the midst of a violent demonstration against Israeli policies in Yehudah and Shomron.
Lasky painted a picture in which the IDF, until the December 15 incident, viewed Tamimi merely as a nuisance, but that after the Israeli public expressed anger at the video of her shoving IDF soldiers, it did a sudden U-turn and made her public enemy number one.
Dozens from the Tamimi family have been arrested and at least two killed by Israeli security forces, and the week before Ahed was detained her cousin was hit in the face by a rubber bullet.
Nour Tamimi (2L) and her aunt Nariman Tamimi (2R) attend a hearing at the Ofer military court in the West Bank on January 1, 2018.
Nour is charged with allegedly assaulting a soldier and interfering with a soldier's duties.

However, as Hajek pointed out, the situation might just be temporary, meaning that there's a chance you might "outgrow" daily smoking.
"The court said that because she is so unsafe there is no possibility of bail", Ahed's lawyer Gaby Lasky told reporters.
According to Amnesty International, "the Convention on the Rights of the Child" to which Israel is a party imposes to only try children "as a measure of last resort and for the shortest appropriate period of time".
Ahed has been hailed as a hero by Palestinians for standing up to Israel's occupation of the West Bank.
"Israel is clearly, brazenly flouting its obligations under global law to protect children from overly harsh criminal punishments", said Magdalena Mughrabi of Amnesty worldwide. The Israeli army said he "acted professionally" by showing restraint.
"There is nothing that can justify Ahed Tamimi's continued detention".
The Israeli army prosecutes hundreds of Palestinian children in juvenile military courts every year, often after arresting them in night raids and subjecting them to ill-treatment, including blindfolding, threats, harsh interrogations without the presence of their lawyers or families, solitary confinement and in some cases physical violence. The Israeli authorities have also issued a threat to a further 20 members of the Tamimi family that they could be banned from living in Nabi Saleh.
The judge's decision signaled acceptance of the IDF Prosecution's arguments. As such, remand should be the exception to the rule, but in the military courts in the West Bank, the prosecution regularly asks the military judges to approve remand, and the latter nearly always comply.
