The IDF announced Friday it was closing down an Israeli clinic on the Syrian border that has treated thousands of Syrians over the past year.
The Mazor Ladach field clinic, whose name means "relief for the suffering," was part of the army's multi-faceted humanitarian relief operation, dubbed Operation Good Neighbor and launched in 2013.
Israel has treated thousands of Syrians in field hospitals on the border and in public hospitals, mostly in northern Israel, over the past five years. Since 2016, as part of the operation, more than 600 Syrian children, accompanied by their mothers, have come to Israel for treatment. Hundreds of tons of food, medical equipment and clothing have also been sent across the border to Syria.
