Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is in constant contact with captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit's family and feels their pain, the Prime Minister's Office said Thursday.

A statement cited by Israel Radio stressed that efforts to secure the soldier's release are continuing, though Hamas has not responded to Israel's most recent offer for over a year.

The PMO statement came in response to an accusation by the soldier's grandfather, Zvi Schalit, that every time the media discusses Gilad, Netanyahu invites Noam and Aviva Schalit to a meeting that does not yield any results.
