Three Syrians injured in the brutal civil war raging between troops loyal to President Bashar Assad and rebel forces were brought to Western Galilee hospital in Nahariya in northern Israel Sunday.
Their injuries were moderate to serious, according to Israel Radio. It remains unclear who they are or how they were injured.
Since the outbreak of the Syrian conflict in March 2011, over 300 Syrians have been treated in hospitals throughout Israel, over half just at the Nahariya hospital.
The Ziv Medical Center in Safed also treats injured Syrians. Last month, the first Syrian baby was delivered in the Israeli hospital.
“I really don’t feel like I’m in an enemy country; everyone is helping me and caring for me,” she told Channel 2 at the time.
The IDF also set up a field hospital in the Golan Heights to treat some less serious injuries.
Syria and Israel are formally at war, and have fought three major conflicts — in 1948, 1967 and 1973.
Israel has said it offers the care as an act of humanitarian assistance, while endeavoring to stay out of the Syrian war, in which more than 120,000 people have been killed since March 2011.
