Jewish Woman Who Fought ISIS Returns To Israel

(Vosizneias) Tel Aviv– Gill Rosenberg, a Canadian-Israeli who was the first foreign woman to help Syria’s Kurds fight Islamic State, has left the front lines and returned to Israel. After eight months in which she was often incommunicado, rumors stirred that she had fallen captive.

The 31-year-old former Israeli army volunteer said the lessons of the Holocaust drove her to help protect the Kurds and other Middle East minorities menaced by Islamic State advances. “I think we as Jews, we say ‘never again’ for the Shoah, and I take it to mean not just for Jewish people, but for anyone, for any human being… Rosenberg told Israel’s Army Radio on Monday.

The Israeli internal security agency Shin Bet said it questioned Rosenberg and did not elaborate on whether she would face criminal charges, but an Israeli justice official told Reuters it appeared unlikely.
