Hamas passes on letter to captive Israeli soldier
Palestinian militant group Hamas has passed on a “personal” letter to captive Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit from his family, his father Noam and a Hamas spokesman said on Friday.
It was the first letter to reach him from his family, although Schalit has been able to send a trickle of messages home since he was snatched by Palestinian militants in a cross-border raid near Gaza in June 2006.
The letter was given to the soldier last month, Hamas spokesman Ayman Taha said.
Noam Schalit said the letter was “personal” and did not detail its contents.
Just pray a little for him: he really needs it.
