is an Israeli soldier who was abducted by Hamas five years ago and has been held captive in the Gaza Strip ever since. There have been many efforts to release him until now, but if reports from the BBC and Al Jazeera are to be believed, the Israeli government has finally agreed to the demands of Hamas for 1,000 prisoners to be released in exchange. It seems Hamas themselves may be giving ground, as previously they had refused
even such a generous offer as that.
