According to The Iran Project,The American individual was the voice of the awakened consciences in the United States, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kanaani said.

The statement was made in a post on X on Tuesday.

Bushnell set himself ablaze in front of the Israeli embassy in Washington, D.C., in an act of protest against the US administration’s support for the occupying regime’s campaign.

“The self-immolation of Aaron Bushnell, an officer of the US Air Force, in protest against the continued crimes of the Zionists in Gaza, showed how much the awakened consciences in the US are ashamed of their government’s support for the genocide of Palestinians,” Kan'ani stated.

“Bushnell’s cries are the loud voice of the awakened consciences in the US against the government’s complicity in the Palestinian genocide.”

The 25-year-old airman was dressed in US military attire on Sunday as he used a lighter to set himself on fire after dousing himself in a flammable liquid.

“I will no longer be complicit in genocide. I’m about to engage in an extreme act of protest, but compared to what people are experiencing in Palestine at the hands of their colonizers, it’s not extreme at all,” he said in a video he made while walking in front of the embassy.

“This is what our ruling class has decided will be normal. Free Palestine.”

Bushnell was engulfed in flames for approximately one minute before law enforcement officials extinguished the fire.
