“Israel treats wounded Syrians and saves their lives while [Syrian President Bashar] Assad continues to massacre his people,” said Dr. Kamal al-Labwani, a prominent member of the Syrian opposition movement.

“All of Syria sees this and asks: Who is the real enemy?” Labwani said on Thursday while visiting Syrian patients at Ziv Medical Center in Safed, in northern Israel.

“I am filled with appreciation for the dedicated medical care the Ziv Medical Center has afforded wounded Syrians, my countrymen, who have been wounded in the war. This a touching humanitarian gesture, an opening for bringing people closer together and for the hope of peace in quieter days,” Labwani told Ziv Deputy Director Dr. Kalin Shapira.

Labwani, nicknamed around the globe as the “Syrian Nelson Mandela,” has been a leading human rights activist in Syria for over two decades.

Labwani was accompanied on his visit by Israeli-American businessman Moti Kahana, who is involved in humanitarian efforts for the victims of the Syrian civil war.
