Gilad Schalit's hometown "shares in the pain" of bereaved family members of terror victims killed in attacks carried out by prisoners due to be released, a neighbor of the Schalit family told Army Radio on Sunday.

There will not be celebrations in the town upon Gilad's awaited return on Tuesday, he stated, adding that Mitzpe Hila residents understand the sensitivity and weight of the prisoner exchange.

The High Court of Justice ruled on Sunday that it will hear a petition at noon on Monday against the release of 1,027 Palestinian prisoners involved in the exchange deal.

The petition was filed by the Almagor Terror Victims Association.
