An Israeli woman described the horror she said she experienced at the hands of Hamas militants on the day of the Supernova music festival in Israel, according to a report. 

Hamas militants indiscriminately opened fire at the music revelers attending the southern Israel festival on October 7, the day the latest conflict between Israel and Hamas broke out. Video taken at the scene shows Hamas gunmen pouring out of trucks and firing off multiple rounds. Around 260 people died, and others were taken hostage. 

The organizers of the festival said the attack was “a scene of unspeakable tragedy, an inhumane war crime, and unprecedented violation of the most basic human values.”

British tabloid Express reported that Noam Mazal Ben-David had been present on the day of the Hamas attack. She told the outlet that she had been shot in the leg and hip but survived by pretending to be dead among other dead bodies. 

From the hospital, Ben-David, 27, told Express she “danced with friends” while waiting for the festival to begin. All of a sudden, she heard loud explosions, which she initially thought were fireworks. She took out her phone and began singing with her boyfriend, David. When she realized the explosions were coming from Hamas gunmen, she said she began to flee. 

“We got into our car to drive away but they had blocked the exits and made it impossible for us to get out. A security guard came running and shouted, ‘Run for your life,’” Ben-David said. “They were shooting with automatic guns everywhere at everyone.”

Ben-David said she and her boyfriend kept running until they came across a dumpster.

“I told David, ‘Let’s get inside the container, I can feel them getting closer,’” she told Express. “We chose to get inside the left one. Then they threw a grenade into the one on the right, so we knew everyone in there was dead.”

She said she and David hid inside for three hours until a gunman found them and shot David in the chest. The round of gunfire reached Ben-David, too, striking her in the foot and hip. 

“It was Russian roulette as to who would get a bullet,” she said. 

Ben-David said she continued to stay still in the dumpster despite her wounds. Israeli soldiers later found her and administered first aid, she said. 

“I think maybe four out of the 16 who hid in the dumpster survived,” she said.
