The president, prime minister and defense minister are not doing what needs to be done in order to save Gilad Schalit and raise the morale of IDF soldiers, Zvi Schalit, grandfather of the captured soldier, said in an Army Radio interview on Tuesday.

He added, "I turn to the president sometimes [personally], but nothing moves. I wouldn't call it anger, but I am very disappointed."

Gilad will celebrate his 6th birthday in captivity on Sunday.
