The relative of a patient at Jerusalem’s Herzog Hospital, a psychogeriatric institution, attacked a staff member on Wednesday, and the police were called in to arrest him.

The victim was assaulted and bruised all over his body without any prior conflict and even without them knowing each other. Just a few days ago, the Knesset passed a bill that will raise from three to five years’ imprisonment the punishment for those who attack medical staffers.
