The Full Testimony

Testimony of 

Elad Erenraich

Elad Erenraich came with friends to the Nova festival. After missiles landed, and he saw the terrorists, he tried to escape by car, under fire, until the vehicle he was driving was hit by bullets. He jumped out of the car, and ran away from terrorists on a motorcycle. Many of the people running alongside him were injured or killed. Elad jumped into a passing vehicle, with two other Israelis who were also trying to escape, amidst the gunfire and missiles. When he got to Rishon Lezion and told people what happened, they didn't believe him at first. After returning to Rishon Lezion, he was drafted into the reserves and had to go back to the south, from which he had just escaped.
