Noam Schalit, father of kidnapped IDF Cpl. Gilad Schalit, came out against the ceasefire which is expected to take hold at 6:00 a.m. on Thursday morning, saying that it could threaten the life of his son. "Even now we have still received no official information," Schalit said during an interview on Channel 2. "We fear that the opening of the crossings will cause Israel to lose its final leverage regarding the issue of the release of my son." "The prime minister promised that Gilad's issue would be part of the truce agreement," Schalit added.
