Israeli negotiators have seen the tape of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit which will be transferred on Friday, according to a Hamas source quoted in a Chinese report. Xinhua news agency further quoted the source as saying that the video, which was shot some two months ago "at a disclosed area" in Gaza, shows the soldier wearing civilian clothing in front of a piece of material featuring a Hamas logo. "The tape clearly shows that the captive soldier enjoys good health, and shows no sign of injury," the source was quoted as saying. The source added that only Hamas leaders know the exact location that Schalit is being held captive.
