Operation Good Neighbor

Recent events in the Golan Heights have only highlighted the threats posed to Israel because of Syria's ongoing civil war. But such dangers have not stopped and will not stop the fine men and women of the IDF from providing aid to Syrian civilians who find themselves casualties of the cruel and ceaseless conflict:

“Mazor Ladach,” whose name translates to “Bandaging Those in Need,” is a field hospital where the staff treats injured Syrians. “The clinic has already cared for hundreds of Syrians and changed their lives,” said Lt. Col. A., Commander of Operation Good Neighbor.

The clinic itself is located in an uninhabited military post in the southern Golan Heights, in Israeli territory. The 210th Division helped train the staff and the clinic gradually became a real military field hospital.

The clinic began operating last September, and since then the staff has managed to treat hundreds of Syrians every day. “All of the organization’s members are unpaid volunteers,” said Lt. Col. A.

“Take, for example, a Syrian mother who comes with her children. At the end of the day, she leaves the clinic with healthier children and an aid kit from the State of Israel that includes food, basic hygiene products, and medicine. A day at the clinic also includes, time in the playroom and a hot meal. The Syrians also understand that the State of Israel is doing a great thing for them...”
