The seven Syrians wounded in the their country's civil war who were evacuated to Israel overt the weekend were all in stable condition on Sunday after surgery at Safed's Ziv Hospital.

Their admission came as a surprise to Ziv, but the hospital spokesman said: "When patients come to the emergency room, we take care of them."Five arrived at first, followed by two more. All suffered from gunshot or shrapnel wounds. One of the patients, who was shot in the abdomen, was in critical condition but stabilized and operated on; he is now in intensive care.



The other six were in less serious condition. The Syrians are being guarded in separate rooms, and there are Arab speakers who can communicate with them. The spokesman said they are likely to be hospitalized for about a week.
