An IDF spokesman announced on Wednesday morning that, following the completion of their medical treatment, six of the seven injured Syrians that received medical aid in Israel have been released.
The IDF medical discharge of the Syrians was completed at an undisclosed location—for their own safety. They returned to Syria. An additional Syrian who is severely wounded remains hospitalized.
Israel admitted the Syrians on Feb. 16, through the Golan Heights. Israeli officials gave no further details on the injured men’s identities. The seven were wounded during the heavy fighting in Syria, as Syrian troops bombarded the demilitarized zone near Israel on Saturday, in reprisal for rebel action nearby, according to AFP. They suffered from gun-shot and shrapnel wounds, and were operated on at Ziv hospital in Tsfat.
This was the first time that Syrians had been taken to Israel for medical treatment since the uprising against President Bashar Assad began almost two years ago.
