A sore point for the hospitals in Israel’s north has been who is going to pay for the hospital treatment for the wounded Syrians that are brought in to them by the IDF.

Over 600 Syrians, wounded in their civil war, have been treated in Israeli hospitals, and around half of the wounded are children.

Most of the injured have been taken to Ziv hospital in Tzfat and the Western Galilee hospital in Nahariya.

These Syrians brought to Israel are treated to extended hospital stays, advanced surgeries, rehab, medicines, prostheses, wheel chairs, and other medical supplies.

The hospitals have been taking on the burden of treating them at their own expense, without knowing if they would recover any of their expenditures, but there is still a fiscal limit to how much they can handle without remuneration from someone.

After much argument, the Prime Minister’s office has decided that the Ministry of Defense will cover a third of the cost for the outlayed costs, which comes to around NIS 10 million ($2.85 million) to date.

The remaining NIS 20 million ($5.7 million) will be covered by the Ministry of Health.

This NIS 30 million will be transferred immediately to the hospitals, and from now on, every 3 months money will be transferred to the hospitals to cover the costs of treating wounded Syrians.

In general, after recuperating, these wounded Syrians have returned to Syria with a positive view of the country they’ve been brainwashed all their lives into hating.

    Will this be reported by the “mainstream”news outlets? Nope…

    When they leave they might be impressed by the generosity if Israel but it won't be too long when they forget or their countrymen will kill them. Remember one thing; THE KORAN IS TELLING THEM TO KILL THE INFIDELS.

  3. Yechiel Baum says:

    as the money is so expendable for the defense budget, it should be used for the Holocaust survivors and those who fought in the 1948 war and 1956 war instead of them living in destitute, hungry and without medication. Are Jews to be treated less than those who hate and kill us? Shame for having no morality to our own people first.

    Does anyone from the Israel government read these messages?
