Israel Treats More Than 2,600 Wounded Syrians: Army

JERUSALEM (AFP) – Israel’s medical services have treated more than 2,600 Syrians wounded during their country’s conflict since 2013, despite the two nations being officially at war, the Israeli army said Tuesday.

“The wounded are transferred to the border where they receive first aid from Israeli medical teams before being taken to hospitals,” the army said on its website.

It did not say whether rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad were among those treated.

Assad’s regime regularly accuses Israel of supporting “terrorists” — a label it applies to all its opponents.

Israel and Syria have been officially at war for decades, though the border between the two countries was largely quiet until the Syrian conflict broke out in 2011.

The Jewish state has carried out a number of strikes inside Syria, several of them targeting Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, an Israeli arch-foe and ally of the Syrian regime.
