RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Liberated prisoner Wisam Marof set himself alight in front of the finance ministry in Ramallah on Sunday protesting the PA’s neglect of his condition.

Eyewitnesses said that Marof, 20, suffered burns in his hands and chest.

Palestinian media quoted Marof after the incident as saying that the PA was marginalizing him and many other liberated prisoners from Israeli jails.

He said that the finance and prisoners’ ministries in Ramallah did not give him any financial assistance despite his difficult economic and health conditions at the pretext that he did not meet the required criteria.

Local sources said that Marof has a medical report from Tulkarem proving that he suffers a 70% physical disability.
