The brothers of Itzik Saidian, an IDF invalid who set himself on fire last night (Monday) in front of the offices of the Rehabilitation Division and is now hospitalized in a critical condition at Sheba Hospital, asked to pray for his well-being.

My father said that his brother is a leader in his character, but had a hard time dealing with reality: "Neglected him, he saw terrible things and no one addressed," he said.

My father added that Itzik saw his friends being burned in the jeep.

"Everyone thought he was just talking. Help him and all these soldiers. Let my brother get out of this, pray for him in all the synagogues. Open a Torah scroll, pray for him."

His sister Leah said: "Our Itzik is the youngest brother in the house. A child who is full of giving, always fights for the weak. That's what he did now. It's not just for him, it's for thousands of soldiers who go through it and don't get an address." 

As you may recall, 26-year-old Saidian set himself on fire yesterday in front of the Rehabilitation Division of the Ministry of Defense in Petah Tikva.

His condition is human, and he suffers severe burns to his body.

Sheba Hospital reported earlier today that he was anesthetized and respirated and hospitalized in the intensive care unit of the burns treatment unit.

The incident provoked many reactions.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at the beginning of last night's cabinet meeting: "On the eve of Remembrance Day, we are witnessing a shocking event. Itzik Saidian, a Golani fighter in Operation Resilient Cliff, set himself on fire due to great mental distress. Earlier tonight, I spoke with the chairman of the IDF Disabled People's Organization, Idan Kliman. I was deeply shocked by the case and also said that I am committed to carrying out a comprehensive reform of the way we treat IDF disabled people and our wounded.

I am sure that in this I reflect the opinions of many, many of you. "

Chief of Staff Major General Aviv Kochavi said: "On behalf of the entire IDF, I send my best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery to Itzik Saidian, a former fighter in the Golani Brigade.

Among our fighters and our reservists are those whose injuries cannot be seen and they carry in their minds the scars of battle for many years.

"The IDF and the people of Israel owe a great debt to those who risk their lives and lives for the protection of the state and we must do everything we can to fight for them."
