JNS.org Poriya, a Tiberias hospital, has joined Safed’s Ziv Medical Center as well as Israeli hospitals in the Western Galilee and in Nahariya in treating casualties of the ongoing Syrian civil war.

One Syrian patient, suffering from moderate leg injuries, arrived at the Tiberias hospital for treatment on Monday, Israel Hayom reported. So far, the hospital has treated 11 Syrians, including a 10-year-old girl.

One of the patients at Poriya, 26-year-old Mohammed, recounted the heavy fighting in Quneitra. “I have been fighting for a year and a half, and I don’t believe the war will end any time soon. When I recover, I will return to Syria and continue fighting,” he said.

Baha, another Syrian patient, said that his friends had brought him to the border after he was hurt because they had known of people who had been wounded in the fighting, and then treated in Israel, who safely returned home. According to his account, most of the patients treated in Israel resumed fighting upon their return to Syria.
