"He managed to escape and hide alone for four days," said Jelena Magid, who was captured by Gazans and handed over
to Hamas. He tried to reach the Rafah border and was eventually captured by the Gazans and handed over to Hamas."

Kriboy's cousin, Alex Magid, gave a similar detail in an interview with Israel's Army Radio on Monday. Several Palestinian gunmen were killed in the bombing of the building, it said.

Citing Kriboy's dual Russian citizenship, Hamas said he was released to show Moscow.
Because Russia is the only world power to openly support Hamas in the seven-week war. Hamas has so far released women, elderly women and children according to the deal. But on Sunday, Hamas released 7-year-old Kriboy along with the rest of the hostages.

Like other hostages who returned from Gaza, Kriboy has also been kept away from the media. Israeli officials are focusing on helping them improve their physical and emotional well-being.
