Sketch of Israel's flag by 9 yrs old girl from Syria as gratitude for her medical treatment in Israel

Lt. Col. A, who oversees the IDF's Operation Good Neighbor has the pictures of his children hung on the wall of his office. On the opposite wall there is a framed picture of a Star of David that was drawn by a 9-year-old girl from Syria who suffered from severe diabetes and was taken to the Ziv Medical Center in Safed for treatment last year.

When she returned to Israel for a medical inspection, she came across Lt. Col. A. by chance. While they were talking, the girl asked to draw an Israeli flag for him, and she did so with help from her , who growing up was fed a daily diet of Israel-hatred.

For the 9 year old, drawing the Star of David proved a difficult task, but she was eventually able to complete the sketch with a little green heart drawn above, alongside her and the officer's names.

In recent months, quite a few such drawings have been given to IDF soldiers by children from syria who discovered that their only place of refuge proved to be a country they had been indoctrinated to loath. The drawings are perhaps the only way these children have to convey their gratitude for the Israeli hand that extended in their hour of need.

“There won't be support rallies for Israel by the border, but in another 15 years, a 19-year-old Syrian man who was operated on in Israel will see the two scars from the bullet he was hit by, and he will remember who saved his life, and he will tell his children too,” one officer from the Bashan Brigade, which carries out much of the humanitarian efforts on the border, told Ynet.

“It took time before we built trust with them. The first delivery of food that we sent them, they burned, because according to their customs, it is forbidden for an individual to accept help with food. So we began with food for babies and from there we sent sacks of flour weighing 25 kilograms to bakeries and that opened the door to other kinds of food,” the officer explained.

“There were also cases when they told us that our bulgur (wheat groats) didn’t taste good, but that was alright,” he quipped. “It testified to the level of trust that had been formed. Now we send food that doesn’t need to be cooked, like cans of beans, corn and hummus.”

At the same time, 4 other children from Syria, who were seriously wounded in the fighting in Daraa, received medical treatment in Israel.

Refugees from Deraa, the city in which the rebellion against Assad began 7 years ago, have heard about Israel’s humanitarian efforts long ago, with many of the area's children receiving treatment from the IDF.
