The Hamas terrorist group has released a new video on kidnappings in honor of the seventh anniversary of the kidnapping of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. Shalit was released in late 2011 in exchange for the early release of more than 1,000 terrorists imprisoned in Israel, giving rise to much controversy on the possible precedent set and the expected - and already proven - return to terror of those freed.

The latest video opens with photos of Israeli soldiers who were kidnapped and murdered, including Avi Sasportas, Ilan Sa'adon, Alon Kroani, Nahshon Wachsman, and Yaron Hen.

The second part of the video shows Shalit buttoning his shirt and putting on his shoes in the moments before he was set free after several years in captivity.
