Udi Arma

“Part of me remains there.” Udi Arma, 37 years old from Bat Yam, escaped from the festival after hiding for six hours in the security booth at Nova. “I saw so many terrorists shooting everywhere. I saw young people fall on the floor and the terrorists making sure they were killed, and just after taking their watches, phones, and wallets from their bodies. I heard screams in Arabic next to me. I tensed up all over my body and knew I was going die. I said to God: ‘This is not my time’. After six hours we heard soldiers.”
