Conan O'Brien: Israeli doctors who treat Syrian patients 'deserve a Nobel Peace Prize'

Conan O'Brien has been busy filming his new special "Conan Without Borders" in Israel.

The late night host seems to be having fun visiting Israel's top attractions including the Western Wall in Jerusalem, the Dead Sea, and he even stopped by the set of the Netflix series "Fauda." He also met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

But the trip hasn't been all laughs; the comedian shared a more serious moment of his trip when he visited a hospital in the Northern city of Safed.

After meeting with patients and physicians at the hospital, O'Brien said he feels the Israeli doctors "deserve a Nobel Peace Prize" for their work at the Ziv Medical Center.

Ziv, in conjunction with the Western Galilee Medical Center, has been providing medical care to a several thousand Syrian civilians the Israel Defense Forces bring over the border for treatment.

"I am amazed and excited by what is being done here at Ziv for the sake of people from a neighboring country and an enemy, and I think you are the ones who need to receive the Nobel Peace Prize," O'Brien said during his visit, according to the Jerusalem Post.

O'Brien also filmed in Mexico for a previous "Conan Without Borders" special.
