A hero British woman saved the lives of four injured revellers when she rammed her car through a roadblock as Hamas gunmen opened fire when they tried to escape the massacre.
Noa Beer, 29, who was raised in the UK but moved to Tel Aviv, and two others narrowly escaped the massacre at the Nova Festival in south Israel after being surrounded by terrorists who were ‘firing like crazy straight at me’.
She rammed her car through a road block while a gunman just a few feet away opened fire at her, barely missing the car window.
The young woman, who had injured people in her vehicle, drove away and ‘didn’t look back’, not stopping until she reached a hospital nearly 40 minutes away.
Noa’s story comes hours after Hamas pledged to execute an Israeli civilian captive for each new Israeli bombing of civilian houses without pre-warning.

The group has abducted at least 100 people including women and children since clashes began on Saturday.
Israeli authorities have since confirmed that at least 260 bodies were found at the festival site. Ms. Beer says there are ‘no words to describe the horrors witnessed’ that day.
‘Hundreds of people are being held by Hamas, hundreds killed and hundreds more missing.
‘We all came to celebrate our freedom and love and were left there bleeding and in pain, there are no words to describe the horrors witnessed by us, children of love and trance.’
Ms Beer arrived at the festival party around 2.45am and was tasked with chaperoning one of the foreign DJs throughout the duration of his set.
She recalled how at first ‘everything seemed so great’ and that the festival goers were ‘happy, partying and enjoying themselves’.

Around 6.20am, after spending time on the dance floor, she was back on stage filming another friend’s set. She said it was around then ‘we noticed that there were rockets in the sky’.
‘The situation was surreal, we didn’t hear anything as the music was loud but suddenly we started seeing the rockets in the sky,’ she said.
‘The next few moments were scary, we shut down the music and yelled to the crowd that there were rockets and everyone should lay down and cover.’
She says she then went backstage where around 20 people were ‘sitting there scared for our lives’. Just minutes later they were instructed to get out of the party as quickly as possibly.
‘I told the DJ I was with that we were running to the car and getting out,’ she recalled. ‘We were one of the first cars out of the party, I thought it was lucky, we had no clue as to what was coming.’
Ms Beer was the third of around five cars on the road and trying to get home when she and her group came under fire.
‘The next few minutes are hard to explain,’ the 29-year-old said. ‘The two cars cars before me suddenly hit the brakes and went straight into each other and there was a motorbike on the side of the road with a man laying next to it, I thought they had hit the bike and stopped.’

She described the moment of seeing the terrorist, saying: ‘I saw him looking me dead in the eyes and lifting the gun to shoot us the moment I started driving towards him’
She said she was opening her door to help the injured man when she saw the first terrorist about 20 metres in front of her. She said he was ‘firing like crazy straight at me, looking into my eyes.’
Ms Beer yelled at the DJ to exit the vehicle and take cover. She thought soldiers were firing back at the gunman but to ‘my horror it was more terrorists’.
‘They were all around us, nowhere to go. The people who were still alive from the other cars were crawling towards us, injured and scared, we were five people hiding between the cars,’ she said.
Ms Beer, in what she described as a ‘split second decision’, then yelled out: ‘Everyone get in the CAR!’
She got into the driver’s seat and, as a terrorist was ‘straight ahead, shooting like crazy with murder in his eyes’, she put the vehicle in reverse.
Survivors of the attack, who posted videos of the ordeal to social media, showed themselves hiding under bushes to avoid the Hamas gunmen

‘I drove backwards and turned when I saw I could, and there were more terrorists waiting, cars colliding as the drivers were shot in front of our eyes, people trying to run and being shot dead on the spot,’ she said.
She described the moment she laid eyes on her would-be killer.
‘I saw him looking me dead in the eyes and lifting the gun to shoot us the moment I started driving towards him. Not looking back, I stepped on the gas and drove. He shot at us, he was maybe 2 meters away and barely missed the window.’
She said she couldn’t afford to look back as the Hamas terrorist shot at the back of her car.
‘I had 2 injured people in the car, one was shot in her leg and another in his hand.’

Ms. Beer spent the next 30 minutes driving to a nearby hospital, as rockets fell all around her.
After handing her two friends over to doctors, she spent the next four hours trying to help other people injured in the horrific attack.
She has since made it home safe with only a ‘small scratch on [her] leg.’
Survivors of the attack posted clips showing them crawling under bushes and recording hushed farewell messages to their loved ones as they watched victims get slaughtered.
Many lay petrified for more than five hours before they heard the sound of armed rescuers speaking in Hebrew.
The Palestinian terrorists stormed the Supernova Festival near Kibbutz Re’im, close to the Gaza Strip, as part of its surprise assault on Saturday.
Music at the deadly rave, which survivors said initially had ‘good vibes’, played all night until around 6.30am, when a siren began blaring warning of rockets.
Festivalgoers knew there was a risk of rocket attacks. But they didn’t expect a truckloads of gunmen cutting power to the festival and storming the site, firing indiscriminately into the crowd.

Some are heard shouting, ‘go, go, go!’ as they clasped hands and sprinted away from the oncoming trucks, which followed behind spraying bullets.
The Israeli rescue service Zaka later said it had recovered at least 260 bodies in the aftermath of the attack.
Corpses of young revellers were seen piled up on top of each other in makeshift tents last night as emergency workers tried to identify their remains.

This morning, harrowing dashcam footage from the incident showed gunmen executing civilians as they lay in the sand before rifling through their pockets and emptying bags from their cars.
The distressing image, shared in a pixelated form on the Israeli government’s official Twitter page, showed scores of victims placed in body bags at the site of the ‘beautiful party’ that turned into a horrific massacre.
Footage from the aftermath shows empty festival tents and abandoned cars strewn frantically across the road riddled with bullets.
Many terrified victims had fled across the sand on foot to their cars in an attempt to drive away from the horrors, only to be met with gunfire from attackers piled into jeeps going ‘tree by tree’ in a search for targets.
A Hamas spokesperson said on Monday: ‘We have decided to put an end to this and as of now, we declare that any targeting of our people in their homes without prior warning will be regrettably faced with the execution of one the hostages of civilians we are holding.’
Obaida said Hamas has been acting in accordance with Islamic instructions by keeping Israeli captives safe.

He blamed the move on Israel’s stepped-up bombing and killing of civilians inside their homes in air strikes without warning them.
Gaza has been devastated by airstrikes since Saturday, with the IDF claiming to have hit 500 targets on Sunday night alone. The densely-populated Jabalia refugee camp was among those hit early on Monday, with initial reports suggesting dozens of casualties.
In a video statement Monday, Israel’s foreign minister warned Hamas against harming any of the hostages who were taken from Israel and being held in Gaza.
Eli Cohen said Israel was committed to bringing the hostages home ‘in the spirit of mutual responsibility.’
‘We demand Hamas not to harm any of the hostages, Cohen said. ‘This war crime will not be forgiven,’ he added.
