A man poured flammable liquid on himself and attempted to light himself on fire at Tel Aviv's Rabin Square on Tuesday, but was not harmed in the incident.

Police detained the man and were investigating the background of the self-immolation attempt.

The man was the latest in a string of people who have attempted to self-immolate in the past month in the aftermath of Moshe Silman, who set himself on fire in July in protest of the government's economic policies.
