The driver who was driving the bus torched last night by an extremist Haredi mob in Bnei Brak, Eyal Tzipori, tells Channel 12 that he feared for his life during the incident.

He says he called the police, but waited half-an-hour in vain for them to arrive. He then got off the bus, was attacked, took refuge back in the vehicle, and was ultimately extricated by two paramedics.

The bus was then set alight by the mob.

“I won’t drive that route anymore,” he says.
