Germany will take in eight members of the Syrian White Helmets and their families, as confirmed by Interior Ministry spokesperson Eleonore Petermann in Berlin on Monday. Petermann added that close family members of those selected will also be allowed to enter Germany. Foreign Ministry spokesperson Christopher Burger said an operation like the one on late on Saturday night would be difficult... Еще to reproduce. He called on the Syrian government and its allies to take responsibility for the safety of their citizens. White Helmets, going by the official name Syria Civil Defence, are a group of search and rescue volunteers formed in the wake of Syrian civil war in 2012. Israel helped evacuate some 800 members of the White Helmets and their families from Syria on Saturday, according to media reports citing the Israeli Defence Force (IDF). They were evacuated from areas experiencing heavy fighting. They reportedly entered Jordan and from there will be re-settled in Western countries.
