Gilad Shalit, the Israeli soldier whose kidnapping in June prompted a ground invasion of the Gaza Strip, is alive and being treated “very well,” the leader of one of the groups responsible for the kidnapping told WorldNetDaily in an exclusive interview.
“I can say that [Shalit] is treated very well according to Islamic rules that oblige Muslims to treat prisoners good. Not like America treats our Muslims brothers in Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and elsewhere. And not like the Zionists treat our brothers in the Israeli jails,” said Abu Mohammed, leader of the Palestine Army of Islam.
The Palestine Army of Islam is one of three terror groups that claimed responsibility for Shalit’s kidnapping during the raid two months ago of an Israeli military installation. Hamas and the Popular Resistance Committees also say they took part in the abduction
The Army of Islam is a splinter of the Popular Resistance Committees, a coalition of terror organizations operating in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
