A young Israeli woman recounted her harrowing escape from a burning car after it was hit in a Molotov cocktail attack in northern Jerusalem on Monday, Israel’s Channel 2 reported.

“We heard a very large explosion, and the car filled up with fire. My husband shouted to me to get out quickly. I opened the door, and tried to get out, but I had my seat belt on, so it took me a few seconds,” said Inbar Azrak, 27.

“I rolled out of the car onto the road and my husband came and put out the flames on my skirt which was still on fire,” said Azrak.

“We were lying there in the road, calling for help, when some incredible people came from nearby to help us. We realized immediately that we’d been hit by a Molotov cocktail, it was very frightening,” she said.

Azrak and her husband were rushed to a local hospital shortly after the assault.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Azrak at the hospital on Tuesday and clarified his zero-tolerance policy towards terrorism.

“Terror is terror, no matter where it comes from, and we condemn it and fight against it with the same strength,” Netanyahu said.

“A few days ago the international community joined me in condemning terrorism against Arabs and I hope they will join also against the terror directed at Jews, but I’m still waiting,” he said.

  • Thank GOD they came out alive. Any terrorism needs to be dealt with in a very strong condemnation and severe punishment NO MATER WHO IT WAS/IS. ZERO TOLERANCE!!

    To Mr Natanyahou: You keep saying that you won’t tolerate the terror but I don’t see any action. Drivers inside Jerusalem and the suburbs are hit everyday with molotov coctails and many cars are burn’t . I NEED TO SEE THE ACTION!

    for the Jews, “terror is terror” but NOT for nytimes, not for npr, not afp, not for bbc, etc., etc.

    for those disgusting purveyors of prejudice and hate, it’s only news if the Jews are suspected as attackers. and, of course, if the Jews are suspected, on whatever insubstantial evidence or no evidence at all, the Jews are guilty, guilty, guilty. no inquiry needed.

    and, if an attacker is a Jew, then, all Jews are guilty, Israel is guilty.

    so, the PM is wrong: for Israel and decent people, “terror is terror.” for the nytimes, etc. if “the Jews” can’t be charged, it’s not terror. it’s not news. it never happened.

    Dream on Bibi. No antisemite, which is to say most countries and all countries in Europe, is going to condemn anything if the result was terror against Israelis.
