Motion text

That this House notes that 25 June 2011 is the fifth anniversary of the kidnap of Israeli serviceman Gilad Shalit by Hamas and other Palestinian militant groups in a cross-border terrorist attack inside Israel; is concerned that Gilad Shalit is being held incommunicado in the Gaza Strip and is neither permitted to send nor receive messages from his family; further notes that the International Committee of the Red Cross continues to be denied access to the kidnapped soldier; further notes that the soldier's continued detention is an obstacle to peace between Israelis and Palestinians; further notes that Gilad Shalit's detention is a serious violation of international humanitarian laws governing the treatment of prisoners of war, as enshrined by the Third Geneva Convention; condemns the kidnapping of Corporal Gilad Shalit; and calls on the Government to redouble its efforts to secure his immediate release.
