Self-immolation of a US soldier in Washington

An American soldier apparently set himself on fire in protest against the Gaza war in front of the Israeli embassy in Washington.

The incident occurred on Monday afternoon local time, and authorities transferred him to the hospital.

A spokesperson for the US Army Air Force confirmed that the incident involved an active member of the force. According to a spokesperson for the Washington police department, the man’s condition is critical.

According to The New York Times, the man, dressed in military attire, stated in an online broadcast, ‘I will not be complicit in genocide anymore.’ He then poured a transparent liquid on himself and set himself on fire, shouting ‘Free Palestine.’ Reuters reports that security forces are investigating the incident, and further details have not been released yet.
