Gill Rosenberg, 31, from Tel Aviv, said in an interview with Israel Radio earlier this month she had decided to join the fighters for humanitarian and ideological reasons and “because they are our brothers” who are fighting the evil of Islamic State.

On her Facebook page she posted several pictures, including of Tel Aviv and the Old City in Jerusalem, that she took prior to leaving for Kurdish Iraq and Syria.

“My last day in Israel – seems like way more than a week ago. YPG [Kurdish army] uniform pics coming soon! Once the tailor finishes my customized uniform,” she wrote on one of the pictures.
