55-year-old Tovah Kararo, a nurse working at an HMO on Kaplan Street in Cholon, was killed this morning in a suspected arson attack in her workplace. The attacker poured an accelerant into the room where Tovah was sitting and set it aflame.

Vladimir, a patient present during the incident, recalled the harrowing scenes of the incident. “I was waiting in line when I heard screaming,” he told Ynet. “When I approached, I saw the woman burning, surrounded by people trying to put the fire out. It was horrible. “I saw Karni (the clinic’s physician) taking the extinguisher and jumping into the fire. I joined him and tried pouring water, but within seconds the smoke got so thick that we couldn’t even see her,” Vladimir said, sadly adding “Dr. Karni is a hero, really is. But we couldn’t save her.”

Kararo was a dedicated nurse who worked for more than 25 years in the clinic. She was found lifeless and pronounced dead by paramedics from Magen David Adom.

The 78-year-old suspect is a mentally ill Holocaust survivor. Ynet reports that he seems to have received a flue vaccination about a week ago and has since gone to the clinic daily to complain about it and about the clinic’s medical staff.

  1. Terrible story all around. It makes no difference if the murderer was a so called Holocaust “survivor”. It doesn’t make a difference if the murderer was young or old. A murderer is a murderer is a murderer. This old bag MURDERED an innocent nurse in the most cruel vicious way.There is no need to look for excuses.

        • “Oh, so I guess it’s alright what he did.”
          Nobody said or implied any such thing. Shame on you for engaging in prickly sarcasm over what’s simply a tragic story.

          “A murderer is a murderer is a murderer.”
          Not if he isn’t a bar da’as.
