A disabled Israeli veteran set himself alight two days after the death of an Israeli protester who set himself on fire during a social justice protest.
The wheelchair-bound man, 45, poured gasoline on himself Sunday at a bus station in Yehud in central Israel. Onlookers put out the flames.
He was taken to a hospital in Tel Aviv with burns on 80 percent of his body, according to reports.
His self-immolation occurred hours before the scheduled funeral of Moshe Silman. Silman set himself alight a week ago, during a social justice protest, and died on July 20.
