Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke Tuesday with Esther Pollard, the wife of Jonathan Pollard, just hours after it was announced that the Israeli agent would be released from his life sentence in US prison.

"After decades of efforts [to secure his release], finally, finally Jonathan Pollard will be freed from jail."

He added that throughout Pollard's "long period of incarceration I made sure to raise the subject of his release in all my meetings and conversations with the heads of the American government."

The US Parole Commission announced hours before Netanyahu's statement that Pollard will be released from prison on November 20 after serving 30 years of a life sentence.
