"The time has come to talk about saving his life, not just releasing him," Tzvi Schalit, the grandfather of Gilad Schalit said Wednesday, 500 days after the IDF soldier was taken captive. In an interview with Army Radio, Schalit said that he longed for his grandson and that he felt great anger "at the government's missed opportunities" to secure his release.
