This image made from video released by the Israeli Defence Forces on Sunday, July 22, 2018 shows Israeli soldiers on hand as family members of the White Helmets load into buses to Jordan.

One woman gave birth along the way, many colleagues were left behind to a fate uncertain, and Syria called the multinational operation by several Western powers a crime.
