The condition of Itzik Saidyan, who set himself on fire earlier this month outside of the Defense Ministry’s Rehabilitation Department for disabled veterans, has deteriorated.

Doctors say his condition is critical and is now life threatening.

Saidyan served in the Golani Infantry Brigade during 2014’s Operation Protective Edge. He participated in the Battle of Shuja’iyya, a neighborhood in Gaza City that saw some of the fiercest clashes in the conflict.
