The IDF provided medical care to four wounded Syrians who approached the border fence with Israel on Wednesday, evacuating two of them to Israeli hospitals for further treatment, the IDF Spokesman's Office stated.

The treatment was provided for humanitarian reasons and was approved by IDf Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz.

The IDF emphasized that the incident did not constitute a change in Israel's policy regarding the acceptance of refugees from Syria. The army stated that the two wounded Syrians taken to Israel would be returned to Syria following treatment.
