Less than one week after his release from Hamas captivity, Gilad Schalit received a visit at his home from President Shimon Peres on Monday.

Peres expressed his appreciation and admiration for Gilad's perseverance "in this difficult test. So much time, many hours, days and years in a state of solitude and uncertainty," Schalit's father Noam recalled to Channel 10 following the visit.

Gilad, for his part, thanked Peres for taking the time to visit him at his Mitzpe Hila home.
