JERUSALEM — The Israeli military says six wounded Syrians have been returned to their country after receiving medical treatment in Israel.

The military says the six had completed their treatment and the military took them to an undisclosed location where they returned to Syria on Wednesday. The military would not comment on why they were returned to Syria, where they could be in danger.

Two weeks ago, seven Syrian men approached the frontier between Syria and the Israel-controlled Golan Heights. Israeli soldiers gave them initial treatment before transferring them to a hospital.

It was the first time Syrians sought help in Israel during their civil war. The two countries regard each other as enemies.

The military says the seventh Syrian, who was severely wounded, remains in an Israeli hospital for further treatment.
