Wounded Syrian children in Israel for treatment

(JNS.org) Three Syrian children wounded Saturday night when a mortar shell struck a courtyard where they were playing were brought to the Rebecca Sieff Hospital in Safed, Israel, for medical treatment. A seven-year-old boy was in serious condition with chest wounds and a broken hand; a 10-year-old boy was also in serious condition with shrapnel wounds all over his body, including to his head; and an eight-year-old girl with a leg wound was listed in moderate condition. The mortar shell that wounded the three children left the rest of their playmates dead. A total of 376 Syrians wounded as a result of their country’s civil war have received treatment at the Israeli hospital.
