A social justice protester who set himself on fire at a Tel Aviv demonstration is the victim of "a great and personal tragedy," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, while ordering the relevant ministries to look into the case.

Moshe Silman, 57, of Haifa, poured gasoline on his body and set himself alight Saturday night during a demonstration in Tel Aviv to mark the one-year anniversary of the start of social justice protests last summer.
