Israeli doctors saving Syrian lives
In critical condition with severe shrapnel injuries to their torso and limbs, bullet wounds from head to toe and open fractures—this is how Syrian patients arrive at Israeli hospitals in the north of the country. And they are all treated like any other patient.
“It’s our duty as a regional hospital, where we are located along the Lebanese border on one side and the Syrian border on the other side,” Dr. Amram Hadary, director of the trauma unit at Ziv Medical Center in Safed, tells ISRAEL21c. “We cannot ignore that the Syrian conflict is happening behind our door. We cannot close our eyes, ears and hearts to what is happening there. It’s a catastrophe.”
