Some 700 Syrians Treated in Israeli Hospitals Since Early 2013

As process of caring for civilian casualties of the war in Syria becomes more routine, human rights activists call for Israel to take in refugees.

Approximately 700 Syrian citizens, most of them injured in the civil war, have received medical treatment in Israel. At present around 490 Syrian nationals are inpatients at hospitals in northern Israel. Of these, 233 are at the Rebecca Sieff Hospital, Safed; 200 at the Western Galilee Hospital, Nahariya; 38 at Poriya Hospital, Tiberias; and 20 at the Rambam Medical Center, Haifa.
