Al-Zaytouna Information & Archives Department in Beirut has issued an Arabic informational addition on the abduction of the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. The operation was called “Dissipating Illusion,” and was carried out by Ezzedeen Al-Qassam Brigades, the Popular Resistance Committees and the Army of Islam in the Gaza Strip.
