Hamas to release more details on Shalit capture

The Hamas terror group says it will release more information Tuesday on the 2006 capture of IDF soldier Gilad Shalid, according to Arabic reports.

Shalit was held by the Gaza terrorists until 2011, when Israel released 1,027 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the captive Israeli soldier.
