Former IDF Lt.-Col. Yair Klein landed in Israel overnight between Friday and Saturday, three years and three months after he was arrested in Russia. Klein was released from a Russian prison earlier on Friday.

He had been held in the Russian jail since 2007, awaiting extradition to Colombia, where he is wanted on charges of assisting drug traffickers and right-wing militias.

Upon landing in Israel, the former lieutenant said, "This is a great feeling."

At Ben Gurion International Airport, Klein was received by his friends and family, and referred to the international order for his arrest as "nonsense."
