YERUSHALAYIM (Hamodia Staff) -

Islamic State terrorists have captured a Canadian-Israeli woman who volunteered to join Kurdish fighters in Syria according to unconfirmed media reports on Sunday.

Jill Rosenberg, 31, reportedly came to live in Israel in 2006 and served in the IDF’s Home Front rescue unit.

Israeli news outlets quoted jihadist websites which said that she had been taken captive by the Islamic State during the battle for Kobane.

She told Voice of Israel that she joined the Kurdish resistance out of sympathy for their cause.
