Activists of the Campaign to Free Gilad Schalit and families of Hamas men who are prisoners in Israeli jails will demonstrate on both sides of the Gaza Strip border fence on Wednesday. The Israelis and Gazans are holding the protest to urge their governments to finalize a prisoner-exchange deal. The Israeli activists will deliver 100 packages to Palestinian inmates from their families ahead of Id al-Fitr, the Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.
