Israeli politicians reacted on Saturday to the report that the Obama administration was considering early release for Jonathan Pollard, a former US Navy intelligence officer convicted of spying for Israel.

US officials denied the Wall Street Journal report following its publication. 

Opposition leader Isaac Herzog said together with the whole nation he would be happy to see Pollard at home with his family in Israel.

Minister of Sport and Culture Miri Regev said on Saturday that Pollard deserved to be freed regardless of of the bad deal that was forged earlier this month between Iran and the world powers in Vienna.  She said it was appropriate to release him and not as compensation for the deal.
