The London-based Al Hayat newspaper reported on Monday that Egyptian representatives in the Gaza Strip confirmed that kidnapped IDF Cpl. Gilad Shalit is alive. The report also supported previous Palestinian announcements that Shalit was receiving medical care for wounds sustained in the attack on IDF forces during which he was abducted eight days ago.

Since Shalit was kidnapped near Kerem Shalom on the Gaza border, reports that he was seen alive have consistently turned out to be false, Army Radio reported. Palestinian sources also reported that Egypt has decided to persist in efforts to negotiate an agreement between Israel and the Hamas for Shalit's release.
