Schalit undergoes successful surgery to remove shrapnel

IDF soldier Gilad Schalit underwent successful surgery Friday morning, to remove seven pieces of shrapnel that struck him during combat, when he was taken hostage in June 2006.
Rambam Hospital in Haifa said that Schalit would remain another day at the hospital for observation.
Schalit was released from captivity in Gaza two and a half weeks ago as part of a prisoner exchange between Israel and Hamas.
