The doctor who visited kidnapped IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit said his condition was good and that he was wounded in his stomach and shoulder, a senior Palestinian official told Israel Radio late Friday. The doctor's visit, which apparently took place on Thursday, came after pressure from Egypt led Damascus-based Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal to approve the checkup. The kidnappers had originally refused to allow a visit. According to Palestinian sources, Shalit was wounded in his shoulder and stomach from shrapnel, but his wounds were treated and his life was not in danger.
