Description

Islamist websites are claiming that Gill Rosenburg, a Canadian-Israeli woman who was reportedly fighting with Kurdish fighters in Syria has been captured by Islamic State extremists. Websites close to the extremist group claim Rosenberg was taken hostage following a spate of suicide attacks on a Kurdish controlled area thought to be the key border town of Kobani. The Israeli and Canadian governments are said to be looking into the reports. Rosenburg, 31, was born in Vancouver and holds Canadian and Israeli citizenship. She left Canada for Israel in 2006 and served in the Israeli Defense Forces before reportedly traveling to northern Iraq to train and fight with Kurdish fighters. News of Rosenburg’s alleged capture surfaced on Sunday with reports saying she was taken along with other Kurdish fighters following a series of suicide attacks on Kurdish held positions. A US-based monitoring group said that jihadists were now discussing whether to execute Rosenberg or free her in exchange for Muslim prisoners. Kurdish forces have denied the reports, saying that Rosenberg was not in the area around Kobani at the time of the attacks.
