President tells Jerusalem firebombing victim country will use ‘iron fist’ to fight terrorism

President Reuvin Rivlin said the country will use an “iron fist” to stamp out terrorism during a phone call with the Israeli woman badly burned by a firebomb thrown into her vehicle in east Jerusalem’s Beit Hanina neighborhood Monday night.

The 27-year-old woman, who sustained moderate wounds, was driving with her husband, who escaped unharmed, when the explosive was hurled into their car by an Arab suspect.

The couple fled the moving vehicle, which was engulfed in flames, and went on to strike a pedestrian, lightly wounding him, before coming to a stop.
