Israel Operating Field Hospital Along Border With Syria


syria-hospital-strikeIsrael has reportedly set up a field hospital along the border with Syria to treat Syrians wounded in their country’s bitter and bloody civil war. According to the French news agency AFP, the hospital is situated at Fortification 105 in the northern section of the Golan Heights. The Israel Defense Forces has declined to comment on the AFP report, but the IDF senior command has for some time been weighing the possibility of establishing a field hospital in a Golan Heights army base, in light of the increasing number of wounded Syrians being sent to the border with Israel.

A group of seven wounded Syrians on Wednesday arrived at the border with Israel, where they received medical treatment from an IDF unit. Two of those seriously wounded were transferred to Israeli hospitals to receive further medical attention. One of them, an active member of the Syrian opposition who was evacuated to Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya, subsequently died of his wounds. On Wednesday night, an additional wounded Syrian who was in a very serious condition was brought to Western Galilee Hospital. So far, the IDF has allowed 11 wounded Syrians requesting medical assistance into Israel.
