President Shimon Peres on Monday visited Aviva and Noam Schalit at their tent in Jerusalem outside the prime minister's house.

He assured them that they are not alone and that the State is doing everything possible to bring home their son, captive soldier Gilad Schalit, who has been in Hamas captivity for close to five years.

Peres was also expected to meet with the people who have been a constant source of support to the Schalits and will spend time talking to them.
