Police have arrested a woman suspected of setting a pump on fire at a petrol station.

This CCTV footage appears to show the moment the woman purposely causes the blaze at the Jerusalem garage.

She can be seen approaching a man at the station and then turning away .

The woman then seemingly pulls a lighter from her pocket and uses it to ignite a petrol pump which is being used at the time.

A man is reported to have been sitting inside the car being filled with petrol at the time the pump is set ablaze.

Incredibly, no injuries have been reported following the incident on Tuesday.

A police spokesman said that a woman approached a man while filling his petrol tank and asked for a cigarette.

His written report reads that when the man refused the cigarette she pulled out a lighter from her pocket and ignited the pump.

The woman - who has since been sent for psychological tests - was arrested shortly after the incident and during the investigation she denied it.
