One of the Palestinian groups that captured IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit last summer said the serviceman was in "good health," the first time it has given details about his condition.
Abu Mujahid, spokesman for the Palestinian Resistance Committees, said Shalit would not be released until Israel gave in to demands to release 1,000 Palestinian prisoners.
"Gilad Shalit is in good health and is being treated according to Islamic standards of dealing with prisoners of war," he said. "We are ready to keep him for years so long as our demands are not met," Abu Mujahid said.
