Activists participating in the upcoming flotilla to Gaza have offered to bring a letter from Gilad Schalit's family to the kidnapped soldier in the Gaza Strip, Israel Radio reported Thursday.

The chief of negotiations for the release of Schalit responded that if the activists were actually able to bring the letter in-hand to Schalit, see him and his condition, then they could bring a letter from his family.

Distancing himself from condoning the flotilla's destination, the chief added that the activists' trip to Gaza itself, he added, is unnecessary.
