IDF troops treat a wounded Syrian child. (IDF)

As a bloody civil war raged on in Syria for seven years, the Israeli army quietly set up “Operation Good Neighbor,” using the clandestine humanitarian mission to help, heal, and give hope to thousands of Syrian civilians.

In this video, Syrian civilians express gratitude to the Israeli soldiers, doctors, and volunteers who saved lives, healed wounds, and delivered truckloads of food and medicine to victims of the brutal Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

Witness these amazing acts of kindness and listen to the beautiful words of thanks offered up by those whose lives were touched by this amazing Israeli operation.
