Zvi Schalit, the grandfather of captive IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, spoke Saturday at a rally in Kerem Shalom and told the crowd that defense minister Ehud Barak is attempting to broker a prisoner exchange.

Saturday marks exactly five years since Schalit was kidnapped in a cross-border raid. Despite many attempts by international agencies, his family has been completely denied access to him.
