The family of captive IDF soldier Gilad Schalit chained themselves to a fence outside the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem Saturday, saying that they are "a family in captivity." The move was part of a series of events marking the fifth anniversary of Gilad's kidnapping on the Gaza border, and calling for the government to reach a deal that would see him released.

Hundreds of supporters and protesters gathered to support the Schalit family on Saturday outside the PM's residence, under the banner: Five years - No achievements.
