6 wounded Syrians –including 4 kids whose families were killed– brought to Israel for treatment
Cleared for publication: On Friday night, as part of a unique and complex medical operation run by the IDF 210th Division, six Syrians– four of whom are young children – who were moderately to severely injured were brought into Israel and given medical treatment.
According to Syrian reports, the children’s families were killed by bombings from the fighting in Syria. The children were then rushed to Israel for medical treatments.
All of the injured were brought to an Israeli hospital after IDF soldiers administered lifesaving first aid in Syria.
After being alerted at night, IDF medical troops from the Northern Command arrived at the border in the southern Golan Heights. The troops received the injured Syrians at the fence, treated them and had them transferred to an Israeli hospital for further treatment.
Ever since the Syrian conflict began, a significant shortage of medical infrastructure, doctors and medical supplies has persisted. In response, the IDF has provided life-saving humanitarian aid while maintaining a non-intervention policy in the conflict.
Thursday night, during a special IDF operation, Israel transferred humanitarian aid to Syrians fleeing hostilities who are living in tent camps throughout the Syrian Golan Heights.
As part of the operation, which took place over several hours, 300 tents were transferred along with 13 tons of food, 15 tons of baby food, three pallets of medical equipment and medicine, and 30 tons of clothing and footwear.
