Moshe Silman, a social justice activist who set himself on fire on Tel Aviv's Kaplan Street on Saturday night during a rally, was moved early on Sunday from Sourasky Medical Center to Sheba Medical Center to receive special treatment available there.

Silman had received initial treatment at Ichilov, a part of Sourasky, for burns to 80 percent of his body.

Protest leader Daphni Leef visited Silman while he was still at Ichilov.

Leef said she did not support his actions, but that there were many people falling apart under the burden that the state puts on them without a sufficient safety net.
