The IDF transferred six wounded Syrians, including four young children, to Israeli hospitals for treatment on Saturday, just one day after the military announced it would not allow entry to Syrians fleeing the regime offensive yet will continue providing humanitarian aid.
According to the IDF, the injured Syrians were rushed into Israel and were given initial life-saving treatment by IDF soldiers in the field before being transferred to a hospital in the north of the country.
“Upon receiving the call during the evening hours, the Northern Command medical forces were dispatched to the border fence in the southern Golan Heights and prepared for the medical event,” read a statement by the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.
The wounded included a 10-year-old girl with head and limb injuries, a 7-year-old girl with a head injury and shrapnel all over her body, an unconscious 6-year-old girl with a head injury, a 14-year old boy with a stomach injury and shrapnel wounds throughout his body, a young adult of about 19 years old with shrapnel injuries to his leg. A man of about 25 years old with an injury to his left leg was also transferred to the hospital.
