Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu appointed a new special envoy in the Gilad Schalit affair Sunday night, making the announcement in a private meeting with Schalit's parents, Noam and Aviva.

During the meeting at the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem, Netanyahu told the Schalits that David Midan, a former senior Mossad official, will assume the top role in efforts to return their son from Hamas captivity in the Gaza Strip.
