Following initial shipments of humanitarian aid on Thursday night, the IDF provided life-saving treatment in the field, then transported six wounded Syrians to Israeli hospitals earlier today. Four of the six were children, and their families had been killed in bombardments by the Syrian regime.
According to The Jerusalem Post:
The IDF has been providing life-saving humanitarian assistance to Syrians in the Golan Heights as part of Operation Good Neighbors launched in June 2016, providing among other things 1,524 tons of food, 250 tons of clothes, 947,520 liters of fuel, 21 generators, 24,900 palettes of medical equipment and medicine all while maintaining the principle of non-involvement in the Syrian civil war.
In addition, over 4,800 wounded men, women and children entered the country since 2013. Over 1,300 sick children have been admitted to specialist clinics in Israel since 2016 and some 6,000 patients have been treated in the “Mazor Ladach” field clinic set up by the IDF and run by an international aid organization in the southern Golan Heights since it opened in August 2017.
Israel continues to be the shining light in a very dark region. Continue to pray God’s blessings upon them. But also be mindful to pray for the people of Syria who live under an evil, oppressive regime.
As God works out His sovereign plan in that region, enemy opposition rises. We’re watching the Lord set the stage for what is to come in the end, so let’s diligently be about our Father’s business!
