Doctors Note Pinned to Wounded Syrian's Clothes

A Syrian injured in the ongoing Syrian civil war was taken from treatment at Ziv Hospital in Tzfat. This marks the first time since Israel began accepting wounded Syrians that a patient had been previously treated at a Syrian hospital. The doctor who treated the individual in Syria pinned a note to the patient's clothing with details of the past medical operation. The note ended with the words, "please do what is necessary and thank you in advance."
