US official praises Israel’s treatment of Syrian refugees

US Deputy Assistant Secretary Secretary of State Michael Ratney said Monday he was “astounded” by Israel’s humanitarian treatment of Syrians wounded in that country’s six-year-old civil war and said the medical treatment the refugees have received at Ziv Medical Center in Safed has been an illustration of “Israeli compassion and competence.”


Speaking while leading a delegation of US officials on a tour of Israel’s northern borders with Lebanon and Syria before ending the day in Safed, Ratney said he would “leave Ziv hospital (Medical Centre) with a profound appreciation for the heroic work you are doing treating Syrians wounded in their civil war.”
