Off the BBC radar: an Israeli paramedic on the Syrian border

Since it became known about fifteen months ago that Israel is providing medical care to injured Syrians in a field hospital in the Golan Heights and in civilian hospitals throughout the north, the BBC has covered that story twice – see here and here – with both reports focusing on the patients.

Now, via Elder of Ziyon, we can hear the side of that story as told by IDF paramedic Staff Sgt. Noga Erez who was recently honoured by Israel’s President at the traditional Independence Day awards for outstanding soldiers.
