Doctors argue they have a humanitarian responsibility to treat those wounded in Syria's civil war, but the government is quick to say it will keep the scope of Israeli assistance limited.

Israelies have always medically treated the weak and needy from the "other side". We have the best humane doctors who have taken the doctor's oath.

So sad that the Syrian's Arab brothers are not this humanitarian.

Even when Israel had been at war with Lebanon, and Syria, they still treated the enemy.

At least the Israelis keep their oath and try and saves lives wherever the people come from

Israel is not a part of Syrian war, and Israeli doctors have to responsibilities to help either side. Why do they consider healing Al-Queda people to be a good thing? Those whom they healed may come back the other day and blew up that very hospital where they were treated!

There was a story of an Arab lady from the West Bank who did just that. What makes Israelis think that Syrian Arabs will be much different, especially after seeing Cannibal rebels on camera?
