To date, Israel has treated 166 wounded Syrians at Poriya, according to the hospital’s spokesperson.

The Syrian conflict is estimated to have killed around 220,000 people. President Bashar Assad has lost control over much of the north and east while trying to shore up his control over the main population centers in the west, with the help of allies including Iran and the Lebanese group Hezbollah.
