Channel 12 shows the first pictures seen to date of the Israeli woman who crossed into Syria two weeks ago, and was returned under a deal brokered by Russia.

The pictures are blurred to prevent her from being identified.

The woman, whose name has not been released for publication, is said to be a 25-year-old from Modiin Illit.
