French President Nicolas Sarkozy and French Foreign Minister Alain Juppé sent letters to Noam and Aviva Shalit on Sunday to mark the twenty-fifth birthday of their son, Gilad, who has been held in captivity by Hamas for more than five years.

In the letters, the French leaders said they would do everything in their capacity to free Schalit.

Sarkozy's letter was addressed to Gilad and said, "Trust and be sure than I will do everything in my power to secure your release."
