Netanyahu says "a day does not pass in which we we are not working"
to bring the kidnapped IDF soldier home in meeting with Chilean
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday said he hopes
kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit will be released during his term
"I cannot offer details on our efforts to release Gilad Schalit,"
Netanyahu said during a meeting with visiting Chilean miners who were
trapped underground for 68 days in October. "But you can be assured
that, without giving details, a day does not pass in which we are not
working to make things happen."
"Even if we cannot explain what we are doing, the goal is the same
goal as in New Zealand - to rescue him from the depths of the earth
and return Gilad home," Netanyahu added.
Netanyahu added he "hopes" Schalit will be released during his term
as prime minister.
As of Wednesday, Schalit has been in captivity for 1,711 days since
he was kidnapped by Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip in June 2006.
