Noam Schalit to testify before Goldstone panel

Noam Schalit is scheduled to testify over the phone Friday before a United Nation Human Rights Council panel charged with monitoring compliance by both Israel and Palestinians with the Goldstone report on Operation Cast Lead in Gaza.
On the reports list of recommendations was a call for the release of Noam's son Gilad, who has been held captive in Gaza since June 2006.
The panel is expected to present a report to the HRC in March.
