Parents of kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit, Noam and Aviva Schalit sat outside the prime minister's residence for the duration of Monday night's Pessah seder, Army Radio reported Tuesday.

Army Radio quoted Noam Schalit as saying, "Gilad also deserves to celebrate this holiday of liberation after five long years."

Gilad Schalit has been in captivity in the Gaza Strip for 1,747 days.

On Monday, Noam sat with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for over an hour and a half, though, according to Noam "the only update I got was on the appointment of the new mediator."
