Syrian 'White Helmets' flee to Jordan with Israeli, Western help: officials

Syrian 'White Helmets' flee to Jordan with Israeli, Western help: officialsBy Dan Williams and Suleiman Al-Khalidi JERUSALEM/AMMAN (Reuters) – Hundreds of Syrian “White Helmet” rescue workers and their families fled advancing government forces and slipped over the border into Jordan overnight with the help of Israeli soldiers and Western powers, officials said. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a brief video statement on Sunday he had helped the evacuation at the request of U.S. President Donald Trump and other leaders – and there had been fears that the workers’ lives were at risk. The group, known officially as Syria Civil Defense, has been widely hailed in the West and credited with saving thousands of people in rebel-held areas during years of bombing attacks by Damascus and its allies.
