Report: Shalit Abductors Behind Pipeline Sabotage


The Army of Islam terror group, which abducted Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit five years ago, is behind the sabotage which has disrupted the flow of natural gas from Egypt, according to the Egyptian newspaper Al-Misri Al-Yaum. The newspaper said Egyptian authorities have evidence of the group's involvement.

Noam Shalit, the father of abducted Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, met, Monday morning, with Rabbi Ovadia Yoseph, the spiritual advisor of the Sephardic hareidi-religious Shas party. Shalit asked the rabbi to do what he could to help obtain Gilad's release from Gaza captors.
