Noam Schalit, father of captive IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, said on Sunday that there was currently "A one of a kind window of opportunity" to bring to his son's release. During a meeting with activists in Mitzpe Hila, which was convened in light of media reports that progress has been made in the negotiations between Israel and Hamas, Schalit praised the government for making the utmost efforts to reach an agreement that would lead to his son's release. 'The Schalit family and the activists believe the current government of Israel is fully determined to fulfill its commitment to bring Gilad back before the next government is formed," he said in a statement.
