ABSTRACT
The article reports on Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit's return to Israel after being transferred from captivity by the Islamist political party Hamas in Gaza into Egyptian custody. Shalit, who was in captivity for five years, was released in exchange for more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners held by Israel. According to Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar, part of the deal is Israel's agreement to lift the siege on Gaza that was imposed after Shalit's capture in June 2006.
