Shin Bet head Yuval Diskin told the cabinet in Sunday's meeting that efforts to rescue kidnapped Cpl. Gilad Shalit were not succeeding. However, Diskin said, it was "extremely likely that Shalit is alive and well in the Gaza Strip." Noam Shalit, Gilad's father, said on Sunday that he wasn't aware of attempts to secure his son's release other than those of Egypt. Noam Shalit said that the family had not received any new information from the government regarding their son's condition.
