An Israeli Arab who crossed the border from Turkey to Syria and joined the opponents of the regime of Bashar al-Assad announced to his family that he was having difficulties to return to Israel because the rebels burned his passport. He said they told him that "every person who joins them will not return to his family."
Young's relative told Ynet: "A month ago my relative called and told me that he and his friend were happy. They told us the rebels gave them food and a place to sleep and taught them how to fight against members of Assad." But then in another conversation according to a close relative the tone changed. "He called back and said he was very afraid, and the two are in danger of life and they can not cope with the situation."
One of the young Israelis admitted he was wrong when he entered Syria. He said that "the rebels burned our passports and clothes" he said.
Close family said they wanted to help , but "we can not do anything. We are worried about them and we are afraid they will be hurt. "
The Foreign Ministry said that "we made contact with the parties in Turkey to reach the two missing citizens who allegedly penetrated into Syria, and still no result."
