Likud Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Saturday that Israel's decision to admit Syrian nationals wounded in the country's civil war to an Israeli hospital did not mark a change in Israel's policy regarding the admittance of Syrian refugees into Israel.

Speaking in an interview with Channel 2, Ya'alon stated that Syrian refugees would not now be accepted into Israel en masse, but rather that the incident was a one-time affair and similar instances in the future would be judged on a case by case basis.
