A person whose identity is not known succeeded in approaching Hamza Mohammad Hassan Matrouk – the terrorist who stabbed 12 people in Tel Aviv last week – as he lay in a hospital bed at Wolfsohn Hospital.
"Smile for the camera, you %&@#… okay… yes… that's it,” says the man as he records a 6-second video segment. The terrorist scowls.
The fact that someone who presumably is not a member of the security forces was able to approach Matrouk is seen as an embarrassing security breach.
Police blamed the Military Police for the snafu, saying they were in charge of securing the terrorist.
