(Scroll down for video) New video emerged today showing former captive soldier Gilad Shalit getting dressed in preparation of being released, according to video uploaded to the internet.

Seven years after the Hamas kidnapping of Gilad Shalit, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades Hamas military wing, released new video of Shalit, shortly before being escorted to the border crossing with Egypt. In the video, you can see Shalit tying his shoes, buttoning a shirt and rising from his chair, accompanied by two Hamas men.

In the video title, Hamas added: “We started to achieve the goal, and we will go all the way.” Therefore, Hamas threatens that the organization will continue with kidnappings of Israeli soldiers in order to facilitate the release of other Palestinian prisoners currently in Israeli jails.

At the beginning of the video, the military wing showed images of other kidnapped Israelis, who Hamas captured and killed over the years. These include Nachshon Waxman, Avi Sasportas and Ilan Saadon.

A spokesperson for the military wing of Hamas, Abu Ubaida, said the kidnapping of Shalit will not be the last. He also promised that all Palestinian prisoners will be released from Israeli jails. In addition, Abu Ubaida said that the Palestinian people were partners in the success of the Shalit kidnapping and achievements.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
