Hundreds of protesters gathered Sunday at the Erez border crossing to commemorate the 6th birthday that kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit has had since he was taken by terrorists in 2006.
Earlier, activists marched from the Yad Mordecai intersection to the Erez crossing holding protest signs and waving flags.
A number of Israeli musicians were set to perform at a makeshift stage constructed by the activists, including David D'or and Amir Benayoun.
Gilad Schalit's father, Noam, was scheduled to speak later in the evening, prior to releasing a number of doves as a gift to the kidnapped soldier on his 25th birthday.
