The seven wounded Syrian nationals who were rescued from near the Syrian border by Israel Defense Forces soldiers on Saturday remain hospitalized in Rebecca Sieff Hospital in Safed.
One suffered a serious stomach wound and had been listed as critical, but after surgery his condition was upgraded to serious but stable. He remains sedated and on a respirator in the intensive care unit, and will need another operation.
The other six people suffered moderate bullet and/or shrapnel wounds, to their limbs and internal organs. They, too, were operated on and are being treated in the surgical and orthopedic wards. Several of them will also have to undergo further surgery.
All the patients are under special guard, with no one but staff allowed access to them.
