Israeli military police are probing how an unknown man managed to enter the closely-guarded hospital room of a Palestinian terrorist who was shot after stabbing 12 people on a bus in Tel Aviv last week, Israel’s Channel 2 News reported Sunday.

In a brief video clip captured by the intruder, Hamza Matrouk, 23, is seen lying in his hospital bed at the Wolfson Medical Center, recovering from a bullet wound to the calf fired by Prison Service guards who caught him after he fled the No. 40 Dan bus after his stabbing spree last Wednesday.

“Smile for the camera a**hole!” the anonymous individual says as Matrouk turns to look at him. There were no reports that the intruder attacked or otherwise harmed the terrorist.

The day after the attack, the Israel Police, the Counter-Terrorism Bureau of the Prime Minister’s Office, and the Transport Ministry opted to fund and implement a pending plan to train bus drivers on how to cope with a terror attack on their vehicles.

Ten thousand drivers are to be trained to identify suspects and confront would-be attackers if necessary, in addition to being allowed to frisk suspicious passengers, according to the plan.

The security course, first announced in August, will include identifying suspicious passengers, recognizing explosives, suspicious bags, and techniques for disabling an attacker.
