Gilad Schalit's captors talked to Gilad and laughed with him, Hamas leader Salah Alarori in Damascus said Wednesday morning in an interview with Israel Radio.

"Schalit's captors were not violent toward him for the majority of his captivity," asserted Alarori, who was a member of the negotiating team for the Schalit deal on behalf of Hamas. He told Israel Radio that Schalit was in Gaza for the whole duration of his captivity, without leaving.

He further noted that captive soldier took his strength from the value that Israeli society places on human life. Alarori stated that as an enemy, he would prefer for Israeli society to lose this value.
