Former captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit drew and kept a journal while being held by Hamas in Gaza.

Shalit was required to leave behind his sketches and record of his captivity when he was released, Yediot Achronot reported.

He also was given a radio and an exercise bicycle, Reuters reported, citing unnamed Israeli officials. He reportedly picked up some Arabic while in custody.

Shalit had surgery late last week to remove several pieces of shrapnel that lodged in his hand during his capture. The surgery was deemed successful.
