Hostage envoy Gal Hisrch booed by families at Tel Aviv protest

Israel’s point man on returning the hostages Gal Hirsch is booed by families of the captives as he came to a protest they are holding outside military headquarters in Tel Aviv.

“You are an embarrassment,” one woman shouts at him. “What does he do?” shouts another man. “Go home,” says a third person.

As he leaves, several people shout “Shame” at him.

Hirsch, a controversial former senior officer who has had several run-ins with the law, was appointed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

He has been maligned as being ineffectual and sidelined in actual negotiations to free the more than 240 people being held by terrorists in Gaza.
