The Israeli regime has recently transferred another injured terrorist into the occupied territories in order to receive treatment as the number of Takfiri militants treated there has reached 2100.

According to Syria's official news agency SANA, the Israeli regime continues to receive injured terrorists for treatment in the occupied territories before sending them back to Syria to continue committing atrocities against the Syrian people.

According to the report, Israel’s Channel 2 quoted Israeli officer Ilan Glazberg as saying that the Israeli forces transferred one of the injured terrorists into Nahariya hospital in the occupied territories two days ago.

The officer added that the injured militant met his wounded brother who had been transferred to Israel's Ziv hospital three weeks before.

Israeli media described the terrorists as injured in a bid to cover up its military and financial support to the terrorist groups fighting in Syria.

Although Israeli officials refrain from announcing the exact number of terrorists who received treatment in Israeli hospitals, Israel’s Channel 2 noted that the wounded militants are transferred quietly and that the number of them has reached 2,100 since 2011.

The channel added that Israel has changed its plan of transferring the injured militants into the occupied territories after the Syrians in the town of Majdal Shams in the occupied Golan Heights prevented such transfers.

In December 2015, Daily Mail said the Israeli regime saved the lives over 2,000 Takfiri militants at the cost of around USD 13 million since 2013.

​Syria says Israel and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri militant groups operating inside the Arab country.

The Syrian army has repeatedly seized huge quantities of Israeli-made weapons and advanced military equipment from the foreign-backed militants inside Syria.

According to a February report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research, the conflict in Syria has claimed the lives of over 470,000 people in total since the start of the militancy in 2011.
