Gill (Jill) Rosenberg safe?
On Sunday, I reported that ISIS claimed to have kidnapped Canadian-Israeli Gill (Jill) Rosenberg
. Now it's being reported that Rosenberg is safe and sound
Two messages have appeared on the Facebook social media website since Sunday night, indicating Rosenberg was not taken prisoner.
Facebook user Oliver Bruno wrote "Gill is safe and she is not active on
Facebook cause (sic) she has no internet access. ISIS's supporters
launched a rumor on social media that she was captured in #Kobani
which is not true, simply because Gill is at least 300 km. from Kobani."
The message would imply Rosenberg left Israel to fight but was
some 186 miles away from Kobane, a town on the Syria-Turkey border and
the scene of two months of fighting.
A later message from Bruno said the head of the YPG Kurdish forces in Kobane "categorically refuted these allegations."
Another message from Facebook user Emanuela Siyar Barzani, citing a "qualified" source, noted "Everything is fine with Gill."
I certainly hope so.
