A 72-year-old man in heavy debts walked into a bank in Holon armed with flammable liquid and threatened to set himself on fire on Tuesday.

The incident occurred at the Leumi Bank branch, on Holon's Eilat Street.

"The local security guard called us," a Tel Aviv police spokeswoman said. "Officers arrived and calmed the man down. He was then arrested and taken to a station."

The incident is the third of its kind since social justice activist Moshe Silman critically injured himself by setting himself alight in Tel Aviv on Saturday night.
