Israel treats Syrians wounded along frontier


JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military says troops have provided medical help to Syrians near the countries’ border and transported them to a hospital in Israel for further treatment.

A military spokeswoman says soldiers treated five Syrians wounded Saturday near the northern security fence along the frontier in the Golan Heights. She would not elaborate and spoke on condition of anonymity in line with protocol.

Syrian activists reported fighting in the Quneitra region on Saturday, which is on the cease-fire line between Syria and Israel in the Golan Heights.

Israel and Syria are bitter enemies and have fought several wars.
