GOLAN HEIGHTS, ISRAEL (FOX) - The prime minister of Israel is visiting wounded Syrians getting treatment in an Israeli hospital located on the Golan Heights, which is territory that Israel seized from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day-War.

Benjamin Netanyahu talks to an 11-year-old boy recovering from his wounds.

A Syrian man, in his hospital bed, tells Netanyahu it's the third time he's been treated by the Israelis during his country's civil war.

Along the border with Syria, Netanyahu says Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad commits atrocities with help from Iran.

"Here's the dividing line on the Golan Heights between the good and the bad. The bad is what is happening on the Syrian side of this border where Syrian civilians including children, whose screams we're hearing today are being butchered, are being pummeled, are being hit by the air with terrible bombs by the Assad regime. Who is supplying these bombs? Who's supplying these weapons? Iran. Who's giving the instructions? Iran. Who's giving the backing for this butchery? Iran. That's the bad, here's the good, right here," Netanyahu said alluding to the help being provided to injured Syrians.

U.S. intelligence agencies say there are Iranian fighters in Syria supporting Assad.
