It looked like it might end in gunfire. Instead it ended with an engagement.

Something a little out of the ordinary went down on the set of filming the third season of Fauda this week. But it was all in the name of love.

According to Ynet, 30-year-old Keri Hassan thought she was on the set of the hit Yes series working as a body double in a scene. With her head covered with a sack, Hassan was dragged out of a car while Fauda stars Lior Raz and Doron Ben-David shouted in Arabic, and pushed her down on to a chair.

Suddenly, the mood changed, and Fauda co-star and singer Idan Amedi began strumming the guitar as Raz pulled the cover off her head. There, on bended knee in front of her, was her boyfriend Eliya Spinopolos, who works as an assistant cameraman on the show.


In video of the proposal, Hassan appeared shocked when she first spotted Spinopolos, and took a few seconds to understand what was happening.

Then, according to Ynet, she said yes.
