Israel permitted seven wounded Syians to cross its ceasefire line with Syria to obtain treatment in an Israeli hospital on Saturday. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his cabinet that such transfers would only be made "in exceptional cases," Yolande Kness of BBC reported. It was not clear whether the wounded were Syrian civilians or combatants. One of the wounded was said to be in critical condition but has stabilized, a spokesperson for Ziv Medical Centre in Safed told the BBC. The other six had moderate injuries.
