Gilad Shalit, whose skinny frame is the talk of Israel, took a morning stroll with his mother outside the family home in a leafy village in northern Israel, accompanied by police who formed a protective guard around him.

Israel media reported that Shalit, dressed in a t-shirt, sunglasses and a baseball cap with an IDF insignia on it, took a short walk Wednesday morning.

“You have to start with something,” his father, Noam, told reporters. “Gilad feels well. He needs time for himself.”

Shalit was also seen at his home by military doctors on Wednesday. He will be seen by doctors in the coming days in order to get a complete picture of his condition.

Following tests Tuesday, Shalit was found to have shrapnel wounds from his initial capture and to be suffering from malnutrition.
