Schalit family return home to Mitzpe Hila

The family of captive soldier Gilad Schalit arrived at their Mitzpe Hila home in the Upper Galilee early Wednesday evening.
To the sound of activists cheering, “going home,” the family left the Jerusalem protest tent earlier in the day.
The family first gathered in their small hilltop community in June 2006, as they reeled from the news that Gilad was kidnapped along the Gaza border at age 19.
