Islamic terrorists working for Israel to recover bodies of MIA’s?

This news item gave me an eyebrow raise. The Middle East sure is a mixing pot of who is with whom and against whom on different issues…

It is getting to the point where my eyebrow is getting sore from all the raises.

Two articles below on this. 

But the article from Arutz Sheva adds the claim that the recovery efforts by ISIS and FSA were at the request of Israel. 

I must say I am in awe of the efforts made by Israel to recover the bodies of their fallen, even after such a long period of time. If you fall in service, care will still be extended to you. The mentality of a true and just warrior.

Islamic State said to dig up graves in Syria in search for Israeli MIAs

Palestinian terror group claims IS aimed to transfer to Israel bodies of soldiers who went missing in Lebanon in 1982

A Palestinian official based in Syria has claimed that Islamic State members and other insurgents excavated graves in a Damascus cemetery looking for the remains of three Israeli soldiers who have been missing in action for 36 years.

Their goal was to transfer the bodies to Israel, said Anwar Raja of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command terror organization, although it was not clear in what kind of context or for what purpose.

The graves were in the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk, over which Syrian troops regained control last week from members of the IS terror group after a month-long battle, he said.

Raja did not say whether the insurgents had found any bodies, nor did he identify the corpses that were sought.

Tzvi Feldman, Yehuda Katz and Zachary Baumel are the three soldiers who have been missing in action since the first Lebanon War.

In June 1982, 30 Israeli soldiers were killed and five were captured in a battle near the village of Sultan Yacoub in Lebanon, close to the Syrian border.

Two of the captured soldiers were returned to Israel alive and the remaining three are still officially missing in action because no conclusive proof has been presented that they died.

PFLP official: Israel sent Syrian rebels to find missing bodies

Senior terror official claims Israel sent armed Syrian rebels to find remains of soldiers whose bodies have been missing since 1982 battle.

“Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine” (PFLP) terror group official Talal Naji said Saturday that Israel is using its links with rebel organizations in Syria to find the bodies of those missing from the battle of Sultan Yacoub in 1982.

He claims that armed men from ISIS and the Free Syrian Army dug in an old cemetery in the Yarmouk refugee camp in Syria, in order to find the remains of those missing from the battle that took place in the 1982 Lebanon War.

Since the battle, the bodies of three IDF soldiers – Zacharia Baumel, Yehuda Katz and Tzvi Feldman – have not been identified and have been considered “missing” for years.

Naji said that the Israelis have always sought their remains, in accordance with the Jewish faith which requires the return of the remains of Jews killed in war or outside the borders of the country.

The Lebanese Al Mayadeen TV channel asserted that Naji’s comments reinforced the claim that the rebels in Syria were cooperating with Israel.
