Israeli hospital treats seven Syrian war victims
Six Syrians were treated at a hospital in Israel for injuries sustained in the conflict and repatriated Wednesday, the Israeli military said, dpa reported.
They were among seven Syrians admitted to a hospital in the northern city of Safed, where some underwent surgery.
The military said the group had approached Israeli troops in the north of the occupied Golan Heights on February 16, and asked for medical treatment.
The six were "released at an undisclosed location for their own safety," while one remained in hospital, the military said.
Israel and Syria are technically still at war, and the seven are the first victims of the uprising against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to be treated in Israel.
