Bereaved family members of victims killed by Palestinian terrorists released in connection with the current Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations called on US President Barack Obama to free Jonathan Pollard.

"Mr. President, with a broken heart, we are turning to you and asking you — please release Pollard, in the name of justice, compassion and humanity," read a letter signed by 22 members of the Almagor Terror Victims Organization.



The organization presented the letter to US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, who was requested to pass it along to Obama.

"If all the requests and considerations weren’t enough, please do this as a gesture to us, families who lost those most dear to them, and who were forced to see the murderers of their precious ones freed - so that the end of the Pollard tragedy will offer them at least a tiny sliver of consolation," read the letter.
