French Ambassador to Israel Christophe Bigot said he will visit with Noam and Aviva Schalit in their protest tent in Jerusalem Wednesday, following news that a deal was struck with Hamas to release their son Gilad from Hamas captivity.

French interest and involvement in Gilad's case, Bigot said, "is not only because Schalit is a French citizen - he is also an Israeli citizen - but there is also a strong sentiment of human concern in France," speaking with Army Radio

Gilad is one of nine French hostages being held across the world, he added. But additionally, a number of French municipalities, including Paris, have taken up the case of Schalit.
