This is the article I read about Israel taking care of Syrians.

Over the weekend, (click here) 7 wounded Syrians arrived in Israel in critical condition among them a 2-year-old child. Israeli soldiers provided medical care and evacuated them to hospitals in Northern Israel.... 

...Among the wounded was a 2-year-old girl, who was critically injured in the head. Due to the immediate need to be evacuated to a hospital, the girl was evacuated together with her mother by helicopter. The rest of the wounded were evacuated to nearby hospitals in the northern part of the country....

There is always some kind of nonsense occurring at Israel's borders. Closing the access from the Sinai is necessary. Unfortunately. After the border was closed some Sinai militants fired rockets across the border. There were injuries. That is status quo.

Israel updated its warning against travel (click here) to the Sinai Peninsula on Sunday, calling on Israelis already visiting to leave immediately.
The warning came after two church bombings, one in the city of Tanta and the other in Alexandria, killed at least 43 people, with the Islamic State (ISIS) group claiming responsibility.
"The fatal terrorist attacks which took place today reflect once again the terror capability of the Islamic State," the Israeli government anti-terror bureau said in a statement quoted by AFP.
"In light of the gravity of the threat, the anti-terror bureau advises Israelis currently in the Sinai to leave immediately and return to Israel," it added....

Destroying 20 Syrian aircraft is not all that.

Syria has missiles, by the way. Syria is not Iraq. It is an armed country, Iraq was disarmed of all missiles, except, Scud missiles that were only allowed to strike up to it's sovereign borders.

...The Syrian air force had some 365-385 combat aircraft (click here) when the fighting started. It is not clear how many are now active but a rough estimate is probably about 50 percent with very low sustainability against an active air attack, limited pilot training, and low daily sorties generation rates. It had no modern air defense fighters and operational readiness standards have almost certainly degraded. Syrian holdings of air defense fighters included 85 aircraft with aging avionics and which are very vulnerable to both IAF and U.S. fighters, air-to-air missiles, and air combat systems like the AWACs. These include: 50 obsolescent MiG-23MF/ML/UM Flogger, 35 export versions of the MiG-29A/U Fulcrum with limited computer and radar capabilities for look-shoot down and long range BVR combat. According to the IISS, a large number of these systems were not operational before the civil war: 30 MiG-25 Foxbats and 2 MiG-25U Foxbats....

If Syria states if there are more missile strikes, it means it. It may pick US military targets in the Mediterranean Sea. That is why Syria is an ally of Russia. Russia has a naval base there. The USA has naval vessels in Italy. This is not funny. Syria is not a joke.

Moscow: Russia's military Friday (click here) said a U.S. strike on a regime air base in Syria was ineffective but announced Syrian air defenses would be strengthened to shield the country's key infrastructure.

"To protect Syria's most sensitive infrastructure, a complex of measures will be implemented in the near future to strengthen and improve the effectiveness of the Syrian armed forces' air defense system," defense ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in a statement.

He added the strike had had an "extremely low" military impact, and fewer than half of the 59 reported U.S. missiles had actually found their target.

"Only 23 missiles reached the Syrian airbase," he said....
It seems to me Mr. Spicer is composing an Iraq War 2.0 story line. No one is speaking the truth. Israel has received refugees from Syria. They were very ill, including, children. Those refugees are being medically treated in Israel's hospitals by Israel's doctors. The media should be following the progress of those refugees. 

If I remember the reports correctly the refugees were survivors of gas exposure. These incidents should be included in the record at the UN Security Council.

Thank you Israel for the humanitarian effort.

This is an outrage!

This illegal shooting took place with an Opelika, Alabama (click here). Sessions is an Alabama native with no particular interest in proper police work. At one point one officer states to another, "So you stopped to protect him." (camera stop 7:21) Really?

This is the kind of treatment the American people have to look forward to with Sessions in the AG office.

It was no surprise when Attorney General Jeff Session (click here) announced his decision Monday to curb the Justice Department office which investigates and sometimes sues local police department for “a pattern or practice” of unconstitutional law enforcement....
