Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein told a group of seven MKs who will be attending pro-Israel events in Congress and New York City next weekend to push for the release of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard.

The Knesset members will take with them a petition signed by 106 MKs calling on US President Barack Obama to commute Pollard's sentence to the 28 and a half years he has served.

"The Americans have already agreed to his release and now all that is left is to agree on the price," Edelstein told the MKs.
