Gilad Schalit continued to receive treatment and undergo detailed medical examinations at Tel Nof Air Force Base on Tuesday, IDF Spokesperson Yoav Mordechai said on Tuesday.

Mordechai stated that IDF medical staff would determine, in accordance with Schalit's health, the best manner to transport him to his home in Mitzpe Hila, either by land or flight.

The IDF spokesperson said that Schalit was exposed to some media while he was in Hamas captivity, including radio broadcasts.

Mordechai asked the public and especially the media to respect the Schalit family's privacy.
