Video Shows Israeli Commandos Rescuing Wounded
Jihadists From Syria
Nearly every night, Israeli
special ops forces secretly rescue wounded fighters in Syria, among
them jihadists, as seen in dramatic footage the
Daily Mail captured while embedded with the military force.
The Daily Mail reported that the secret nighttime
missions have saved more than 2,000 people since 2013, some of them
members of Al Qaeda-affiliated groups in Syria.
The Daily Mail described the dramatic rescue
Under cover of darkness, an Israeli armoured
car advances down the potholed road that leads to Syria.
As it crests a small hill, the driver picks up
the radio handset and tells his commanding officer that the
border is in sight.
He kills the engine. Ten heavily-armed
commandos jump out and take cover, watching for signs of ambush.
Then five of them move up to the 12ft chainlink fence that marks
the limit of Israeli-held territory.
On the other side, on the very edge of Syria,
lies an unconscious man wrapped like a doll in a blood-drenched
duvet. The commandos unlock the fence, open a section of it and
drag him onto the occupied Golan Heights.
The man — whom the Daily Mail described as an
Islamist militant about age 20 — had been shot in the intestines and
liver. The Israeli rescue squad put him on a stretcher then in an
armored vehicle to send to an Israeli hospital.
Chaos: Alongside the
fence with Israel numerous groups battle in Syria, including
Hezbollah, Government troops, rebels and ISIS
