Odah Mohammad Sadaqa

June 02, 2022: Odah Mohammad Sadaqa, 17, was killed by Israeli soldiers in the al-Midya village, west of the central West Bank city of Ramallah.

The Palestinian Health Ministry said the soldiers shot Odah with an expanding bullet in the chest before the Palestinian medics rushed the critically injured child to Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah where he succumbed to his wounds.

His uncle Mofeed Sadaqa said his nephew tended to the family flock in an area not far from the Annexation Wall, adding that Odah was also playing with other children near the Wall when a soldier shot him in the back.

Media sources in the village said the situation was calm, as there were no protests in the entire area when the soldiers shot the child.

Israeli sources only said, “a Palestinian teen was killed by the army near Ramallah” and did not provide any details about the fatal shooting.

The Palestinians in the village confirmed that the fatal shooting of the child had no reason, especially since there were no protests in the area, adding that the soldier who shot him was in one of the heavily fortified monitoring rooms of the illegal Annexation Wall.
