Is­raeli Arab paraglides to Syria

Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

Is­rael says one of its Is­raeli Arab cit­i­zens de­lib­er­ately paraglided into Syria, amid re­ports of in­ten­sive Is­raeli aerial op­er­a­tions overnight.

Prime Min­is­ter Benjamin Ne­tanyahu has threat­ened to re­voke the man’s cit­i­zen­ship amid spec­u­la­tion he was try­ing to join a Syr­ian rebel group.

Wit­nesses re­ported in­ten­sive ac­tiv­ity in the bor­der area, in­clud­ing Is­raeli air­craft drop­ping il­lu­mi­na­tion flares.

Is­rael main­tains a neu­tral stance on the Syr­ian con­flict. Its cit­i­zens are banned from trav­el­ling there, but a small num­ber of Is­raeli Arab cit­i­zens are un­der­stood to have gone to fight in Syria nonethe­less though few ar­rive by air.
