About 50 activists for the release of Gilad Schalit carried a coffin to Jerusalem’s National Precinct on Sunday morning in protest of the government’s failure to secure the captured IDF soldier’s release.

The activists stood outside the Prime Minister’s Office building and shouted, "Let us make sure Naom Schalit will not become a bereaved father." Holding the coffin aloft, they added, “Here lies the military ethos not to leave any soldier behind."
