Report: Shalit Back in Israeli Uniform

Staff sergeant Gilad Shalit reportedly was received by Egypt wearing an Israeli army uniform, prior his return to Israel, Tuesday morning, according to Egyptian media.

In an October 2009 video, Shalit was not wearing an Israeli uniform. He was a corporal when abducted from the Kerem Shalom base on June 25, 2006 by Hamas and its terror allies. He was promoted while in captivity.
