An Islamist group affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has claimed the capture of an Israeli pilot inside the Dara’a Governorate’s western countryside on Saturday night – the group, “Liwaa Al-Shahada” (Martyrs Brigade), is currently engaged in a fierce battle with their former allies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the Syrian Al-Qaeda faction “Jabhat Al-Nusra” in this region of western Syria.

According to social media activists from the Syrian Opposition, the Israeli pilot allegedly ejected from his aircraft after losing control of it in western Dara’a; this resulted in his reported capture by the ISIS affiliate, despite providing no visual proof to confirm this peculiar claim.

If this report of the Israeli pilot’s alleged capture by Liwaa Al-Shahada in western Dara’a proves true; this will mark the first time since the Lebanon War of 2006 (also known as the Hezbollah War of 2006) that a member of the Israeli Armed Forces has been captured by an enemy unit.

There have been other claims made as well, including the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) allegedly entering Syria to seek out Liwaa Al-Shahada and free their serviceman from the aforementioned Islamist group; however, this has not been confirmed by the IDF Spokesperson.

As of now, these are all allegations that bear no fruit until footage is provided or confirmed by the Israeli Defense Forces.
