Free Gilad Schalit demo to be held outside Prime Minister's Residence

The Free Gilad Schalit campaign was due to hold a demonstration outside the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem on Friday. It comes after a week of reports indicating that Hamas and Israel were close to a deal for the release of the captured solider. Last Friday, for the first time in the campaign, a protest was held outside the Kfar Saba home of IDF Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi.
