Israeli Parasails Over Border to Join ISIL in Syria

“A few dozen Israeli citizens have flown abroad in the past two years to join the ranks of the Islamic State, or ISIL, but this weekend marked the first time one of them parasailed over the border directly into Syria. The event, which was picked up by Israeli sensors, sparked an hours-long search on Saturday by aircraft and troops along Israel’s northern border for an innocent glider who may have inadvertently been windswept over the border. By Sunday, however, the Israeli military announced it ended the search when it became clear that a young man — an Arab Israeli citizen from the center of the country — intentionally parasailed across the border to join ISIL or other rebel groups fighting in Syria.”
