Her story, one of help "in the land of the enemy," is making headlines around the world.
Since the Yom Kippur War four decades ago, Israel has been in a state of cease-fire with Syria.

"A lot of patients arrive here from enemy countries and view Israelis as demons. They are surprised that we are human without horns on our heads," he added. "This is the first time they see Israelis without a uniform and I think it's a good surprise.”
