Jerusalem - Mere hours after Hamas released a video of former kidnapping victim, IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, seemingly enjoying his time spent while in captivity, his family released a statement calling the clip a "distorted picture" of his ordeal.

The Hamas clip, which shows the former captive participating in a barbecue with his captors, was derided by the Shalit family over its attempt to diminish Gilad's pain and suffering during his five-and-one-half years in captivity.

"The miscreants who were the captors of the soldier Gilad Shalit are using all means to present a distorted picture," said the family, adding that the clip "does not reflect in any way five and a half years of captivity, loneliness and a daily fear in the struggle for survival."
