Young Man Sets Himself Ablaze over Economic Hardship
Frustrated in his job hunt, Abu Nada doused himself in petrol and set himself alight inside Gaza’s main Shifa hospital.
His neighbours suggested he might have chosen to immolate himself at the hospital because he had wanted to make a gesture rather than kill himself, but medics there could not save him.
He was pronounced dead on Sunday.
“He left to seek work and he did not come back. My heart was shattered,” his weeping father told a local radio station.
“We live in a miserable condition. We live in a rented house and I hardly can afford the rent,’’ he added.
A police official from the Islamist Hamas movement, which rules Gaza, said an investigation was under way to determine the motive of Abu Nada’s death, as he cited unemployment as the possible motive.
Do You think it is right to take the easy way out by placing more hardship on your loved ones? Just a thought. Being suicidal is never a solution......
