Wounded Syrian seeking medical help at Israeli border sent to hospital in Israel for treatment

Israel's military says a Syrian seeking medical assistance along the border has been brought to an Israeli hospital for treatment.

The military says the man was given first aid at the frontier between Israel and Syria on Saturday. The military says it transferred him to a hospital after assessing his medical condition and says he will be returned to Syria after treatment.

The military did not provide details on the man's condition.

Syrians wounded in their nation's civil war have crossed into neighboring Israel before to seek medical help. Israel says it is increasing the number of medical teams at the border in response.

Eleven Syrians have already been treated at Israeli hospitals, including one who died from his wounds this week. The others returned home after their conditions improved.
