Air Force member dies after setting himself on fire outside Israeli Embassy


An Air Force member who set himself on fire in front of the Israeli embassy in Washington in an act of protest against the war in Gaza on Sunday died from his injuries, an Air Force spokesperson said Monday.

“The individual involved in yesterday’s incident succumbed to his injuries and passed away last night. We will provide additional details 24 hours after next of kin notifications are complete,” Air Force spokesperson Ann Stefanek told POLITICO.

“I will no longer be complicit in genocide,” the Air Force member said in a video posted on social media before the protest. “I am about to engage in an extreme act of protest.”
