The Palestinian deputy minister of prisoner affairs said Saturday that kidnapped IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit has received medical treatment for his wounds and is in stable condition. Speaking at a news conference in Ramallah, Ziad Abu Aen cited unidentified "mediators" as telling him that Shalit, abducted during a raid into Israel by terror organizations last Sunday was injured during the incident.
