"A surveillance post identified an Israeli civilian entering Syrian territory using a paraglider" late Saturday, an army statement read.The army said the paraglider took off from the southern section of the Israeli occupied Golan Heights, adjacent to southern Syria.The Al-Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade, which is supportive of ISIS and active in the Deraa area in south Syria, addressed rumors circulating about the flight Saturday night, stating on its Facebook page that it had not taken an Israeli captive.According to the Shin Bet internal security agency, some 45 Arab Israelis have joined militant forces in Syria, mainly entering through Turkey.
