Gilad Schalit met with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv Thursday for the second time since the soldier was released from Hamas captivity late last year.
The Schalit family thanked the prime minister for freeing him from Hamas captivity. Gilad told Netanyahu that he has gained six kilograms since returning home and that he expects to be discharged from the IDF soon.
Gilad's mother, Aviva, thanked Netanyahu and his wife Sara, saying "we will always remember that you returned Gilad."
Netanyahu told the family that it was his wife who constantly reminded him that he needed to think of Gilad.
In a message following the meeting, Netanyahu said he is pleased the former captive is feeling and doing well and wished a happy Passover to the Schalit family.
