Beloved Gaza traffic policeman among casualties of war

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gaza's most famous traffic policeman Muhammad al-Mubayyid was killed during the recent Israeli assault as he tried to save his grandmother from her home, Gaza police said Saturday.

Gaza police spokesman Ayman al-Batneiji told Ma'an that al-Mubayyid was one of the most active traffic policemen on the force, and used to stand guard at the most crowded squares in Gaza City, al-Saraya and al-Ittisalat.

Al-Batneiji said that he was a Gaza City landmark, and almost every driver in the city remembered him.

Al-Mubayyid was killed in Israeli shelling after most of his family had fled their home in al-Shaaf in Shujaiyya, one of the hardest-hit neighborhoods in Gaza.

After he had escorted family members to a shelter outside the neighborhood, he returned to check on his grandmother, who had refused to leave her home.

It was there that the Israeli shell struck, killing both of them together in her apartment. The building was completely leveled in the strike, which occurred on July 21.

The strike came amid a major Israeli onslaught on the neighborhood, which killed more than 100 in less than two days.

Al-Mubayyid was also a soccer player at the Hitten sports club.
