Israel Railways head Mr Harel said some very foolish things and he needs to be sacked immediately. What in the name of GOD is the use of emergency equipment if it is known that in a TRUE emergency such as this, people won't be able to use it???? In a fire situation in which people are panicking, the device to open the doors should be VERY easy to find and operate....even for someone who is on the train for the first time in their life! Thank God the people got off safe, but this situation is another example of Israeli incompetence. The People will pay dearly for it one day.
