IDF combat medic, Hananya Naftali (Facebook)

Hananya Naftali served as a combat medic for the IDF, primarily treating injured Syrians who came to Israel in desperate need of help.

After Hananya Naftali finished his medical training in the Israel Defense Forces, he was sent back to his unit to serve as a combat medic on the Israeli-Syrian Border.

Injured Syrians would arrive at the field hospital at all hours of the night, desperately in need of emergency medical assistance, some of them near death.

Sometimes Hananya wondered why he was awake at 4 AM, saving the lives of Syrians.

The answer he discovered, is heartwarming!
