Gilad Shalit, the former IDF soldier who was held prisoner by the terrorist group Hamas in Gaza for five years, is set to marry his fiancé, Nitzan Shabbat, in a private ceremony tonight.
Only close friends and family will attend.
Shalit, 34, was captured in June 2006 in a cross-border raid through a Hamas tunnel. He was released in October 2011 in a controversial exchange for 1,027 Palestinian prisoners.
