Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard was temporarily taken out of his North Carolina prison on Tuesday to undergo an urgent surgical procedure needed because of severe lung problems.

MK Uri Ariel (National Union) said in a statement that Pollard's deteriorating health "emphasizes the terrible humanitarian crime that his continued imprisonment constitutes."

Ariel called on the American public to pressure the US government to release Pollard immediately.
