A police officer prevented a man from setting himself on fire at the National Insurance Institute in Kfar Saba on Tuesday.

The man had poured flammable liquid on himself and brandished a lighter which the policeman managed to take out of his hand.

Police detained the man for investigation.

The incident was the latest in a spate of self-immolation attempts that began when Moshe Silman set himself on fire at a social justice protest in Tel Aviv earlier this month. Silman died of his injuries six days later.
