Another Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) veteran––this time a physically challenged one––self-immolated himself on Sunday afternoon in town of Yehud, 15 km from capital Tel Aviv. This is the sixth such case in last eight days in the country yet the international media grossly underplayed them.The victim of Sunday’s self-immolation, an ex-soldier on wheel chair, sustained 80 per cent burns. The incident follows the death of IDF veteran Moshe Silman, on Friday last. In fact Silman self-immolated himself on July 14 last but succumbed to injuries on July 20. His self-immolation sparked a series of similar protests in Israel.
