One of Mohammed’s sons was killed by Hamas’ military wing, Iz al-Din al-Qassam, in October 2006 in Gaza. A large martyr’s poster of his son, which includes a double portrait of him smiling, hangs on a living room wall in Mohammed’s small apartment in the West Bank city of Beitunia, next to a large yellow Fatah flag and two photographs of Yasser Arafat. The son, who was 24, was a member of the presidential guards unit and was killed by a bullet fired from a building opposite his father’s office.
