JERUSALEM, Israel – The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced it is ending its Good Neighbor mission, which delivered tons of food, fuel and other necessities to war-ravaged Syria. “After two years of complex, wide ranging and extensive humanitarian aid, which has helped thousands of Syrian civilians, the ‘Good Neighbor’ Command has ended its activities,” the IDF said in a statement. The move comes after Syrian President Bashar Assad’s troops regained control in southern Syria – an area that was held by rebel groups over the past seven years. CBN News reported on the Good Neighbor project several times, including joint work of the IDF with Evangelical Christian Ministries of Frontier Alliance International and Friend Ships, Camp Ichay.
