Israel is setting up a field hospital on the Syrian border to aid Syrian refugees
The Israeli army plans to erect a field hospital on the Syrian border to treat injured refugees.
The hospital is to be set up in the central Golan Heights or near the Quneitra border crossing with Syria.
Queneitra: Much of that area occupied by Israel
"Much of the governorate was captured by Israel in the 1967 and 1973"
Queneitra: the crossing in which IDF and NATO mercs pass into Syria despite the presence of the UN. Or because of the presence of UN peacekeepers?
This incident from a few days ago ( Feb 16/2012) coincides nicely with the 'Syrians' treated in an Israeli hospital.
Quneitra rebels briefly controlled a military checkpoint in the town of Khan Arnaba before they withdrew...Why would they have withdrawn? Did Syrian regular army force them to withdraw?
How many IDF were with the rebels? Or was it all IDF? Would these persons, forced to withdraw due obviously to the involvement of Syrian army, be our patients in the Israeli hospital. I would think so.
How about you?
BTW: in case this thought didn't cross your mind, let me help by mentioning this...
*Israel admitting they are setting up a field hospital indicates that Israel is fully involved in the attack on Syria to the extent that it's forces are taking casualties.
*It may also indicate to us all that Israel is going to increase it's activity in Syria and will be requiring the field hospital for immediate treatment of soldiers and perhaps their NATO merc pals?
Just a thought!
Now onto an update regarding the 'Syrians' in the Israeli hospital, initially mentioned here: "Syrians" hurt in Syria being treated in Israel ??
Other then the narrative promoted in the Israeli media there is no real information that validates the Israeli claim of Syrians being treated. Israel is even going so far as keeping these persons “under guard for their own protection” An act I find very odd.
Dr. Oscar Embon: "The Syrians are under guard for their own protection”
Under guard from what? Under guard from whom?
The media, perhaps?
If Israel is so graciously treating Syrians why not allow the media in to interview them?
Showcase the hospitality of the Israeli nation and the terrific medical treatment bestowed on these refugees Really, wouldn't that be great PR for the state of Israel? Sure it would be!
And yet, Israel is keeping them under guard?
Maybe the guard is not on duty to keep the media away from the 'Syrians' ??
Perhaps there is another reason these individuals need guarding?? Is Dr. Embon suggesting that the Israeli staff and other Israelis that enter the hospital cannot be trusted around the ‘Syrians’?
Does Oscar think some random Israeli might wig out and try to harm/kill one of these ‘Syrians’, thereby necessitating their "under guard" status?
Just considering all the reasons for the Guard being present.
If you're at all curious about the condition of these persons in hospital you will be saddened to read that their recovery time is expected to be long. Very long.
Contradicting the earlier reporting:
One of the Syrians was seriously wounded, four were moderately wounded and two had light wounds. A spokesman said wounded are likely to be hospitalized for about a week.
Which means they would or should have been out of hospital by this week's end.
It seems as if the “long recovery” message virtually guarantees this story is going away and no one is going to report on who (IDF) was really in the hospital in Israel (IDF)
