Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the Schalit family were set to met Friday at 4:30 by the protest tent outside the prime minister's residence after Netanyahu returns by plane from his trip to the US, according to Israeli newspaper Ma'ariv.

Shouting matches erupted earlier in the day at the Schalit protest tent in Jerusalem as pro-Schalit activists were confronted by those demonstrating against the freeing of Palestinian terrorists with blood on their hands, including the families of past terror victims.

The protesters opposed to the Schalit deal reportedly shouted, "we also want Schalit home, but we aren't willing to pay any price [for his freedom]. We won't sell the lives of others for the life of Schalit."
