"Once again we stand here tonight, outside the prime minister's house. After 1700 days that Gilad has been languishing in captivity, as we were here 100 days ago, before 200 days and before 700 days," Aviva said.

"We have cried the silent cry of Gilad from the darkness of the pit in Gaza, his call to the prime minister who is hidden here at his home. We cry and call and there is no response," she added.

Gilad's mother described the days of suffering, the ongoing nightmare, and the longing for what he had left behind forever.

Aviva Schalit called on Netanayhu to "bring Gilad home before it is too late.

"I want my son back. We all want Gilad home," she continued.

Police closed Aza Street to traffic.
