Israeli doctors operated on a month-old Syrian baby with a congenital heart defect in an effort to save the child’s life.

“There is no discrimination here,” said a Syrian father whose tiny child received life-saving surgery in an Israeli hospital this week.

The baby was was born at the beginning of June in Cyprus, where his parents live since fleeing the brutal civil war in Syria.

Since that war broke out, Israel has treated thousands of Syrians, both in a field hospital near the border and in facilities in major cities.
