Shalit Speaks with Family
Gilad Shalit has spoken with his family for the first time since he was kidnapped at the same spot 1,491 days ago, BBC reported.
Shalit soon is expected to reach Kerem Shalom, the first time he will have been in Israeli territory since he was captured. Israel officials dressed him in an IDF uniform after he was transferred to the Egpytian side of Rafiah.
