Hundreds of disabled IDF veterans blocked the Ayalon Freeway in Tel Aviv on Sunday to demand major reform of the defense ministry rehabilitation branch. Among the demonstrators were family members of 26-year-old Itzik Saidian, who set himself on fire last week to protest against the state's treatment of disabled IDF soldiers.

Among the participants in Sunday's protest was Itay, who was wounded in South Lebanon 22 years ago. He spoke to KAN reporter Naomi Segal about the battle wounded veterans must wage with authorities to secure their rights.
