Secret IDF Special Forces mission rescues last remaining Jewish family in Aleppo, Syria from ISIS slaughter
Very very interesting! Zionists saving a family from ISIS?
Where were the Satmar Shomrim?
Where were the big "machers" with the keys, and flashing lights?
Watch! Soon, Artscroll will be re-writing history and claim that Rav Weissmandel would have saved them but the Jewish Agency didn't give him any money!
Oy vey, the Zionists IDF saved them...oy vey!
Special mission rescues final Jewish family in Aleppo, but aliyah regulations prevent complete success.
By Matt Wanderman It was recently revealed that Israeli special forces carried out a daring operation to rescue the last Jewish family in the Syrian city of Aleppo.
The Jewish Chronicle reports that preparation for the mission began months in advance. First an Israeli-American businessman named Moti Kahana sent a message to the family, whose name has not been released, that he wanted to get them out of the war-torn country. Despite the constant dangers in Syria, though, the family was too afraid to even take the chance on escaping.
Kahana, who has a number of connections with rebel forces, soon heard reports that ISIS was closing in on the family and decided to get them out, whether they liked it or not.
Without revealing precisely how or with whom he coordinated his plans, Kahana set the wheels in motion for the IDF to make another tally in its history of saving stranded Jews, a list that already made its mark in Yemen and Ethiopia.
Once the time came, three soldiers knocked on the family’s front door. The 88-year-old matriarch answered, fearing that Assad’s soldiers had come to take them all away. Instead, the soldiers ordered the seven people present that they could each take one bag and that they must get into a waiting minibus.
After the minibus began moving, the soldiers handed out Syrian passports and said that they would soon be free.
The vehicle was stopped at an ISIS checkpoint, but the family was able to convince the guard that they were refugees trying to escape from Assad. The guard was so impressed by their claims that he even called other checkpoints, instructing them to let the minibus through.
It took them 36 hours to cross the hundred kilometers to the Turkish border. Once out of Syria, they drove to a rented home in Istanbul, where Kahana was waiting.
However, their problems were not yet over.
One woman, who is referred to as Gilda, was married to a Muslim man and hadconvertedtoIslam. While the rest of the family quickly received Israeli identity cards and resettled in Ashkelon, the Jewish Agency informed Gilda that people who voluntarilyconvertto a religion other than Judaism lose their right ofreturn.
According to Kahana, the two chose to return to Syria rather than remain in a Syrian refugee camp inside of Turkey. He says that he is still working to get them out again, but he is less optimistic about a second operation.
