Dozens of people arrived on Wednesday morning to stand for the siren at the Defense Ministry’s rehabilitation division in Petah Tikva, as a tribute to disabled IDF veteran Itzik Saidian.Saidian lit himself on fire across from the ministry’s rehabilitation department on Monday, and is currently in critical condition at Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer.

“The Defense Ministry is praying for the well-being of a disabled IDF veteran Itzik Saidian, and is standing by his family at the hospital during these difficult moments,” the ministry said.
“This is a very difficult event, which shocks every human being. Itzik, a disabled IDF veteran treated by the Defense Ministry, experienced distress that led him to a desperate, terrible act,” it said. 
In addition to those who stood outside the rehabilitation division on Wednesday morning, another demonstration was organized near the ministry’s office in Tel Aviv by the Zahal Disabled Veterans Organization
The organization demanded there be changes in the Defense Ministry’s rehabilitation program, claiming it “provides disabled veterans with poor treatment and steals their rights.” 
“[It] is in a complete collapse, both in its function and value… The results are revealed to everyone now. It’s time for a real revolution and a comprehensive reform of the Disability Rehabilitation Division!” the organization’s head Idan Kleiman said of the Defense Ministry’s rehabilitation department.
