London based Arabic language daily Al Hayat on Thursday reported that moments after he was captured in 2006, Gilad Schalit was scared but answered questions immediately and was not tortured, according to his captors.

Gilad Schalit was kidnapped in a cross border raid by Gaza based terrorists including members of the Palestinian Resistance Committees (PRC), who gave an interview to Al Hayat newspaper following Schalit's Tuesday release.
