Said Yousef Muhammad Odeh, 05.05.2021. Shot dead – Beita

May 5, 2021 – Beita (West Bank)
16 year-old. Shot in the back twice

A promising player with the Balata Youth Center football team, Said was from the village of Odala near Nablus in the occupied West Bank. He was walking towards the village’s entrance night when occupation forces stationed in an olive grove shot him, according to an investigation by Defense for Children International Palestine. He was hit with live bullets in the back, near his right shoulder and in the pelvis area, with both bullets exiting from the front of his body.

Occupation forces then reportedly shot another youth in the back who tried to reach Said to render aid. Israeli soldiers blocked an ambulance from reaching him for 15 minutes. When medics were finally able to reach him, he had no signs of life. Said was taken to Rafidia hospital in Nablus, where he was pronounced dead.

The Israeli army claimed firebombs had been hurled at them and that “troops operated to stop the suspects by firing toward them,” according to the Associated Press. But DCIP found Said had not been involved in any confrontations between occupation forces and villagers when he was shot.
