Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited an IDF base on the Golan Heights that treats wounded Syrian civilians who safely made their way across the border. Netanyahu visited the wounded and then later, surrounded by IDF doctors, nurses and soldiers, addressed the press in this Youtube video:

“Here is the dividing line on the Golan Heights, between the good and the bad. The bad is what is happening on the Syrian side of this border, where Syrian civilians including children, whose screams we’re hearing today, are being butchered, are being pummeled, are being hit by the air with terrible bombs by the Assad regime. Who’s supplying these bombs? Iran. Who’s supplying these weapons? Iran. Who’s giving the instructions? Who’s giving the backing for this butchery? Iran. That’s the bad. Here’s the good, right next to me, these are the doctors, the nurses, the soldiers of the Israeli Defense Forces that are giving help to these children,” said Netanyahu.
