Israel’s military says it’s beefing up medical teams along the border with Syria following several cases of wounded Syrians crossing the frontier to seek medical assistance.
A military official said on Thursday there have been “numerous incidents” in recent months in which Syrians wounded in the fighting in their country arrived at the frontier for first aid from Israeli medics.
Eleven of them were taken and treated at Israeli hospitals, including one who died from his wounds on Wednesday. Others returned home after their conditions have improved.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity under military protocol. He says the military’s focus in the Israeli-held Golan Heights is still on security and defense but that Israel sent extra medical teams to the area realizing more wounded could soon arrive.
