Shalit: My Heart is with the Soldiers

Gilad Shalit, who was held captive in Gaza by Hamas terrorists for more than five years, addressed the IDF’s Operation Pillar of Defense in Gaza on Monday.

"My heart is with the soldiers participating in Operation Pillar of Defense, both regular soldiers as well as reservists. I hope that the quiet returns to the south and that life there goes back to normal," said Shalit, according to a post on the IDF’s Facebook page.

Shalit was released in October of last year in exchange for 1,027 terrorists.
