(VIDEO) U.S. Air Force Member Sets Himself ON FIRE Outside Israeli Embassy [WARNING: Extremely Graphic]

Earlier today, an active duty U.S. Air Force member set himself on fire outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C.

He shouted out in protest, “I will no longer be complicit in genocide,” then repeated, “Free Palestine!” while burning.

Take a look at the disturbing scene for yourself:

Here is the full video (warning: GRAPHIC):

The man, whose name has not been released, is currently in critical condition.

ABC News reported:

An active-duty member of the U.S. Air Force was critically injured Sunday after setting himself ablaze outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C., while declaring that he “will no longer be complicit in genocide,” a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.

The man, whose name wasn’t immediately released, walked up to the embassy shortly before 1 p.m. and began livestreaming on the video streaming platform Twitch, the person said. Law enforcement officials believe the man started a livestream, set his phone down and then doused himself in accelerant and ignited the flames. At one point, he said he “will no longer be complicit in genocide,” the person said. The video was later removed from the platform, but law enforcement officials have obtained and reviewed a copy.

CBS News added:

An active-duty U.S. Air Force member is in critical condition after he set himself on fire outside the Israeli embassy in Washington, D.C., on Sunday, officials said.

The man set himself on fire around 1 p.m. ET and both the U.S. Secret Service and Metropolitan Police Department responded, the agencies said.

The embassy said in a statement to CBS News that no staff members were injured and the person who set himself on fire was not known to the embassy.

MPD also investigated a “suspicious vehicle” it said may be connected to the man who set himself on fire, but that vehicle was cleared around 4 p.m.
