Israel will send blankets, tents and medicine to earthquake-ravaged Syria after receiving a request for aid, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

The decision was made at a meeting of senior government and security officials. Israel will also consider accepting wounded Syrians for medical treatment if it receives such a request, the report says, citing a senior government official.

Israel remains in a state of war with Syria, but has treated wounded Syrian civilians during the country’s civil war.
