An American Air Force soldier serving on active duty lost his life after setting himself on fire in front of the Israeli Embassy in Washington, D.C., stating that he “will no longer be complicit in genocide.”

The Metropolitan Police Department said on Monday that Aaron Bushnell, a 25-year-old airman from San Antonio, Texas, had passed away from his wounds.

The individual talked to the AP under condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly disclose specifics of the current inquiry.

The incident took place while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was requesting cabinet approval for a military operation in the Gaza Strip’s southern city of Rafah, in the midst of negotiations for a provisional cease-fire agreement. However, Israel’s military assault in Gaza has come under fire, with some even accusing the Palestinians of genocide.

Israel has categorically refuted the accusations of genocide and asserts that its actions in the Israel-Hamas conflict are compliant with international law.
