Former captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit visited the family of his tank commander, who was killed in the same incident in which Shalit was captured.

Shalit visited the family of Hanan Barak at their home in Arad on Sunday, Ynet reported Tuesday. He told the family that he loved Barak.

The family told Ynet that the visit gave them “closure.”

Shalit’s parents regularly attend the annual memorial service held for Barak.
