Yesterday was a rough day for the medical teams at Ziv Hospital in Safed, after four injured Syrians that were wounded in the course of the civil war within the country were brought to the hospital for medical treatment. One of them was a three and a half year old critically injured toddler.
The toddler was brought to the medical center by IDF soldiers when he was sedated and on a respirator following bullet wounds in the chest and stomach. Immediately, he was rushed in to have an emergency surgery to save his life. The toddler was brought in together with a 20-year-old man, who was reported to be in moderate condition after suffering gunshot wounds in his jaw.
Earlier on Wednesday, the IDF transferred to the hospital a woman and a teenager wounded in the fighting presently taking place in Syria. The 16-year-old was rushed into the hospital in critical condition with gunshot wounds in the leg. According to the doctors, he may have to undergo foot amputation.
The teenager arrived together with a woman in moderate condition who suffered shrapnel wounds all over her body and had difficult injuries in the ankle. In Ziv Hospital, it has been noted that so far the medical center has helped 157 injured Syrians.
