Senior Israeli officials are considering a deal in which the moratorium on building starts in West Bank settlements would be extended for three months in exchange for the release of Israeli spy suspect Jonathan Pollard from the United States, Army Radio reported on Monday.

According to the report, Israeli sources submitted the potential deal to American sources in Washington, but it is not known if or how they reacted.

The Prime Minister's Office responded to the report, stating that they are not aware of the US being approached with the deal and reaffirming that the building moratorium will end on September 26 as is scheduled.
