Israeli soldier remembered

Gilad Shalit is still in custody after being captured on June 25, 2006 by Hamas fighters in a cross-border raid.

    February marks nearly 2,000 days since Hamas captured an Israeli soldier named Gilad Shalit.

    His case has since become a bargaining chip for Hamas, which demanded that Israel release thousands of Palestinians in its jails in exchange for his release. But negotiations to free the soldier have failed repeatedly.

    Al Jazeera's Cal Perry looks at how the case of the missing soldier continues to affect the pace of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.
