Comment: Ynet reports that Bushnell has since died from his injuries, but other media outlets state that he has survived...
UPDATE 18:00 CET
New York Post confirms that Bushnell succumbed to his wounds in hospital. RIP.
The District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department confirmed to Task & Purpose that they received a report about a man on fire outside the embassy just before 1 p.m. Eastern Time and dispatched emergency services. The fire had been extinguished by uniformed members of the Secret Service. EMS took the man to an area hospital, saying he was suffering from "critical life threatening injuries."
The incident appears to be in protest of Israel's war in Gaza. Independent journalist Talia Jane obtained video of the self-immolation, although it has not been posted online.
Comment: It has actually, Bushnell livestreamed the whole thing on Twitch, which has removed it for 'content violation'. We won't be surprised if this becomes widely censored. They know it's damning for Israel. Here's the full video (Bushnell is blurred from the moment he catches fire):
Note the Israeli embassy guards training their weapons on him rather than helping him.
On X, former known as Twitter, Jane reports that the man in Air Force uniform said he was "an active duty member of the U.S. Air Force and I will no longer be complicit in genocide." He then set himself on fire and shouted "Free Palestine."
