The 200th wounded Syrian refugee was brought into Israel by the IDF for medical care at the Ziv Medical Center in Safed Monday night. The 21-year-old patient was in serious condition with gunshot wounds to his hip and stomach. He was operated on overnight and remains in intensive care.

Ziv Medical Center began receiving injured Syrian refugees in February of this year, and reported that there are currently 10 Syrians under their care. Israel brought eight refugees to Ziv in the last week alone, including four children.

The expense of medical care for victims of the Syrian civil war so far has surpassed NIS 14 million. The issue of covering the cost is currently being discussed by the Health, Defense and Finance ministries.
