Ynet – Masked Arab men stopped a car driven by a Jewish man and pulled him out of the vehicle Sunday in an Arab town in central Israel in what seems to be an attempted lynch. The man managed to escape the scene with the help of local residents who pulled him away in the nick of time, and the perpetrators then set the abandoned vehicle on fire.

A witness told Ynet that “I was at the scene, there were almost 20 people there protesting, some were masked. They stopped the car in which the Jewish man was traveling and began pelting it with stones and fireworks. They took out the driver and began beating him and shouting ‘Allah Akhbar’. Then a group of people pulled him out from under the mob, they claim he said: ‘I saw death, I never thought I’d make it out alive.'”
