Daoud Mohammad Zobeidi

May 15, 2022: Daoud Mohammad Zobeidi, 40, died at an Israeli medical center from gunshot wounds he suffered after Israeli soldiers shot him two days before, during an invasion of the Jenin refugee camp in the northern part of the occupied West Bank.

Dozens of Israeli right-wing fanatics, led by Member of Knesset Itamar Bin-Gvir, went to the Israeli medical center where Daoud had been transferred, and held a protest demanding the Israeli authorities refrain from providing Daoud any medical care “at Israels’ expense.”

Daoud was shot with a live round in the abdomen before Palestinian medics provided him with the needed first aid and rushed him to Ibn Sian hospital in Jenin.

He was later transferred to Rambam Israeli medical center in Haifa due to the seriousness of his condition, and the Israelis immediately said he was now considered to be under arrest and would be interrogated if he survived his wounds.

On Saturday, Israel officially informed the family that Daoud was in a life-threatening condition due to gunshot wounds to the abdomen.

Daoud was seriously injured Friday and was among twelve other Palestinians wounded during the Israeli refugee camp invasion, especially during protests and exchanges of fire that took place after the soldiers detonated one home.

Following his injury, his family said Daoud underwent two surgeries at Rambam hospital and then was placed in the Intensive Care Unit hooked to respiratory machines.

Doctors at the Israeli Hospital said they would know more about his condition after observing him in the ICU for 48 hours; however, he succumbed to his wounds.

Daoud, a former political prisoner, is the brother of Zakariyya Zobeidi, one of six detainees who escaped from the heavily fortified Gilboa prison last year, despite Israel’s massive security measures. The six were captured a week later.

It is worth mentioning that Daoud’s mother, and his brother Taha, were killed on April 6, 2002, by Israeli soldiers during the Israeli military offensive in the Jenin refugee camp.
