Israel repatriates 6 Syrians treated for civil war wounds

Feb. 27, 2013 11:24 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 27, 2013 11:24 A.M.)
JERUSALEM (Reuters) -- Israel repatriated on Wednesday six of seven Syrians after treating them for wounds suffered in the insurgency against President Bashar Assad, the Israeli military said.

Israel admitted the Syrians on Feb. 16 through the occupied Golan Heights, whose eastern foothills have seen fighting between Assad's forces and rebels. Israeli officials gave no further details on the casualties' identities.

A military spokeswoman said six of them were discharged from hospital and returned to Syria on Wednesday. The seventh was still under Israeli medical care with severe wounds, she said.

A statement issued by the Israeli military said the Syrians' repatriation "was completed at an undisclosed location for their own safety." Israel and Syria are technically at war, and some anti-Assad rebels are jihadists hostile to Israel.
