The parents of IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, Noam and Aviva Schalit, called on US President Barack Obama to freeze all aid to the Palestinian Authority until their son is released from Hamas captivity, in a letter sent to two high-ranking American government officials on Monday.

According to the letter sent to US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker of the House of Representatives Congressman John Boehner, the call to freeze PA aid is in line with resolutions unanimously passed in the House of Representatives in May 2010 and in the Senate in June 2010.The Schalits' request also refers to an additional letter sent to Obama by 29 democratic senators which called on the US president to stop financial aid to the PA ever since the Hamas-Fatah unity agreement fused the terror group into the PA's government.
