IDF begins evacuating humanitarian clinic on Syria border
The IDF has begun evacuating the field clinic it set up on Israeli territory near the Syria border, the IDF said Friday.
The “Mazor Ladach” field clinic was established in August 2017 in cooperation with an American humanitarian organization as part of operation “Good Neighbor.”
The day clinic provided medical assistance to locals in the Syrian Golan Heights and treated approximately 6,800 Syrians since its establishment.
Ever since the Syrian conflict began, a significant shortage of medical infrastructure, doctors, and medical supplies has persisted on the Syrian side of the border.
In response to the lack of proper medical options in Syria, the IDF has provided life-saving humanitarian aid as part of operation “Good Neighbor”, while maintaining a non-intervention policy in the conflict.
The IDF is monitoring the ongoing events in the area and is prepared for a range of scenarios.
