Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): This man, who was wearing a military uniform, said in a video broadcast live on the Internet: "I will no longer be a participant in the genocide."

According to the New York Times, he then poured a clear liquid on himself and set himself on fire while shouting "Free Palestine".

According to Euronews, meanwhile, a spokesman for the US Air Force confirmed that the incident was related to a working pilot. The local police and secret service are investigating the incident.

Since the beginning of the Zionist regime's military operation against Gaza, the country's embassy in Washington has been the target of protests against the Gaza war. This is due to the fact that supporters of Israel and supporters of the Palestinians have regularly held rallies in the United States in recent months.

This series of marches and protests started after October 7. The day when the militants of the Hamas movement killed 1,200 Zionists and took 253 hostages.

Since then, Israeli forces have launched a military campaign in Gaza, which according to Palestinian health authorities has left nearly 30,000 martyrs.

Earlier in December, a protester with a Palestinian flag set himself on fire in front of the Israeli consulate in Atlanta.
