Presidency denounces “extrajudicial” killing of teenager south of Nablus

RAMALLAH, Thursday, May 06, 2021 (WAFA) – The Palestinian Presidency Wednesday night denounced the “extrajudicial” killing of a Palestinian teenager by Israeli forces, south of Nablus.

Presidency spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, condemned in a press statement the killing of 16-year-old Said Yousef Mohammad Odeh by Israeli military forces in a raid on Odla village, south of Nablus.

“The Israeli occupation government still insists on proceeding with the same policy of extrajudicial killings of Palestinians and imposing the most severe collective punishments on the Palestinian people and its property in violation of international humanitarian laws,” he said.

He called upon the international community and its institutions, notably the United Nations Security Council, to provide international protection for the Palestinian people to save it from the Israeli occupation authorities’ repression and violations, such as the forcible eviction of dozens of Palestinians from their homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah and ongoing attacks on holy sites.

He stressed the need to put an end to Israel's arrogance, daily extrajudicial killings of and violations against the Palestinian people, disregard to international law in addition to bring about justice through establishing the independent Palestinian state, which is vital for international peace and security.
