ISIS captures Israeli fighter in Syria

The Israeli foreign ministry said yesterday that it has opened an "immediate investigation" into reports that an Israeli citizen, who was fighting with the Kurdish People's Protection Units, has been captured by Islamic State (ISIS) fighters in Syria.

The Jerusalem Post said reports of Gill Rosenberg's capture surfaced yesterday on websites "known to be close to, or even serving as a front for" ISIS.

In a statement, the Israeli foreign ministry said it immediately initiated a probe into the news.

In early November, Israeli mass media reported that an Israeli-Canadian woman had joined Kurdish fighters who have been fighting against ISIS in Syria. She was labelled "the first Israeli fighting against ISIS".
