A currency exchange employee was seriously injured in a robbery in which suspects hurled Molotov cocktails at the business on Monday.

Police said two masked men approached the employee, drew handguns and demanded that cash be handed over.

The employee, 50, resisted the robbery, prompting the suspects to hurl a couple of Molotov cocktails.

A fire broke out, seriously injuring the man.

Magen David Adom paramedics rushed the man, who suffered burns to his chest, hands, and face, to the Western Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya.

The man has been hospitalized in intensive care.
