The deputy chief of staff mentioned the steps of capturing the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit who was freed in 2011 in an exchange deal between the Palestinian resistance and the Israeli occupation. Essa said that” after capturing the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit in the first phase, a special unit of Al-Qassam Brigades hid the captive soldier and held him in prolonged incommunicado detention.

At the end of the program, Al-Qassam Brigades revealed a recording for one of the Israeli captives who said” I am the Israeli soldier … I am currently captivated in the hands of Al-Qassam Brigades and I hope that “Israel” works hard to get me back to my family. I am just wondering if state leaders discriminate between the captive soldiers! Do they mention them or work hard to release them? I die every day and I hope to meet my family soon.”
