Sgt. Sajyer enlisted in the police volunteer force in 2016, and served at the Nahariya station until his death. He left behind a wife, two children, parents, a brother and two sisters.
As you may recall, Sagier died in an incident that took place yesterday morning at a construction site on Aliya Street in Nahariya.
Amir Abu Rish, a 31-year-old policeman from Mirka who was standing next to Sajir, was moderately-severely injured.
According to police, Hossam and the wounded policeman were called to handle the incident at a construction site on Aliya Street in the city.
When the two asked to check work permits and stays of workers at the scene, a vehicle emerged that ran over them.
