A handout picture released by the Israeli Prime Minister Office shows Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit (C) being hugged by his father Noam (R) for the first time in five years as they walk alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak at the Tel Nof airbase near Tel Aviv on October 18, 2011 following his release following 5 years of Hamas captivity under a landmark Egyptian-mediated deal that will see Israel release a total of 1,027 Palestinian prisoners.
