While there are no reports of injuries or damage resulting from the shells on Thursday, wounded Syrians continue being admitted for treatment in Israeli hospitals. Most recently, a Syrian man with a wound to his head, a one-year-old, and a 10-month old were admitted to Western Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya, according to the Jerusalem Post and Israel Radio.

A total of 85 Syrians have been treated in the Nahariya hospital so far during the Syrian civil war, while the Ziv Medical Center in Safed has treated several dozen Syrians.
