The Facebook page features numerous photographs and clips of the woman, a 25-year-old from Modiin Illit, out and about in glorious natural surroundings.

“No fence will stop me,” she writes in one post cited by the TV station.

The woman’s crossing into Syria earlier this month was not her first time attempting to cross Israel’s borders. According to Israeli authorities, she had twice tried to enter the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip — once by land and once on a makeshift raft — and once attempted to cross into Jordan. All three times she was captured by either the military or the police.
