Self-Immolation Attempt at Bituach Le'umi in Kfar Saba

A man in his fifties poured flammable material on himself in a self-immolation attempt, Tuesday morning, at the office of the Bituach Le'umi (National Insurance Institute) in Kfar Saba, northeast of Tel Aviv. The man claimed the attempt came after his request for additional aid was denied.

A policeman who was summoned to the scene prevented the man from carrying out the dangerous act and detained him for questioning.
