On his recent trip to the Gaza Strip, Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal's deputy, Moussa Abu Marzouk, was given a videotape of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, according to Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida. The tape reportedly shows the soldier to be in good health.
The paper on Monday quoted Palestinian sources as saying that Marzouk was given the tape by the group's military commander, Ahmad Jabari. He reportedly also received a letter from Schalit, which he passed on to the Syrian Foreign Ministry.
The Jerusalem Post could not immediately confirm the veracity of the report.
Marzouk reportedly entered the Strip illegally last week after attending Palestinian reconciliation talks in Egypt.
