Israeli forces have taken three wounded militants belonging to Takfiri groups fighting against the Syrian government to hospitals in Israel.
According to reports by Israeli media on Monday, two of the Takfiri militants were transported to Nahariya Hospital in Galilee, and the third one was taken to Poriya Hospital in the Israeli coastal city of Tiberias.
The reports also revealed that in excess of 449 wounded militants have been treated at Nahariya Hospital.
Last month, the Israeli media said, “Poriya Hospital has treated 124 wounded from Syria so far.”
According to documents from Israeli hospitals, Israel’s army paid USD 10 million up until September this year for the costs of treatment to the foreign-sponsored militants injured during battles with Syrian government forces, and the money has come from the Israeli military’s budget.
In October, Israeli political commentator, Ehud Yaari, said the Tel Aviv regime has provided medical treatment for over 1,400 wounded militants from Syria.
Yaari added that some militant groups operating inside Syria maintain contact with the Israeli army and have had secret meetings with Israeli military figures in Tiberias.
In February, Muhammad Badie, a Syrian anti-government leader told Israeli media outlets that the Syrian opposition was grateful to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his February 18 tour to a field hospital in the occupied Golan Heights.
Israel’s Channel 2 News aired footage of a secret Israeli field hospital in the occupied Golan Heights that has treated over 700 Syrians, including militants, over the past months.
Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since March 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
