The government must free Gilad Schalit, the mayor of Rishon Lezion, Dov Tzur, said Saturday night at a solidarity rally held for the kidnapped soldier.

"Gilad is a son of the nation. I turn to the government of Israel...your responsibility is large and clear," said Tzur. He continued, "I call upon you to free Gilad here and now."

Several thousand participants were estimated to have attended the solidarity rally.
