Except it's not odd at all, it's just part of the BBC's aparently deliberate policy of vilifying Israel and allying with Islamist terrorists who wish to destroy it.'Hospital treatment in Israel is normally paid for by the patient's particular medical insurance company, but of course the Syrian patients do not have such insurance.
"Israel's Health Ministry and the Defense Ministry agreed to jointly fund the hospital treatment for the Syrians."
Oddly, the BBC continues to show no interest in telling this rather exceptional Middle Eastern story to its audiences.'
