Demonstrators rallied outside of visiting US Secretary of State John Kerry's hotel in Jerusalem Thursday evening, calling for the release from an American jail of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard.

Protestors chanted slogans and held placards, some depicting former US secretaries of state.

Kerry arrived to the region on Thursday for his 10th round of shuttle diplomacy regarding the Israeli-Palestinian peace process that resumed in July.

A recent debate has emerged over the possibility of Pollard's release as part of a peace deal in return for the release of Israeli-Arab security prisoners.
