Aviva Schalit continued on Sunday night to ask the High Court on behalf of her family not to make any changes to the prisoner-swap deal that will secure the release of her son, Gilad Schalit.

"We understand the hard moments these bereaved families have gone through, we are also a bereaved family," Aviva said. "And yet, any delay could put Gilad's life in danger, the is a matter of saving lives."

Aviva thanked activists and media for their support in the campaign to bring her son home, and urged the public to allow the Schalit parents to help Gilad, and allow the family to "rebuild."
