Yaser Mohammed Abdulrahman Hamed born 9 December 1997 is a Palestinian footballer who plays as a centre-back for Bahraini club Busaiteen and the Palestine national team.

The second of five sons born to a Palestinian father and a Spanish-Basque mother and a product of the esteemed Athletic Bilbao academy which he joined at 10 years of age and departed at 15, Hamed has gone on to play for various Basque sides in the third and fourth tier of Spanish football including CD Santurtzi, SD Leioa, and Club Portugalete. He was in the Portugalete team which won their league group in 2018–19 but narrowly failed to achieve promotion in the play-offs, and was still with them the following season when they managed to follow up a second successive title with promotion; however Hamed left the club at the end of that season.

Yaser Hamed was first contacted by the Palestine national team in July 2019 and made his debut in a 1–0 win over Yemen in the 2019 WAFF Championship. Hamed scored the lone goal in that game, becoming the 17th player in national team history to score on his debut. He went on to play every single minute of the tournament, helping Palestine record their best ever showing at a WAFF Championship finishing behind Iraq with a record of two wins, one draw, and one loss.
