Israel says the United States has freed convicted spy Jonathan Pollard from federal prison after nearly 30 years.

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement: “The people of Israel welcome the release of Jonathan Pollard.

“After three long and difficult decades, Jonathan has been reunited with his family. May this Sabbath bring him much joy and peace.”

The release of Pollard, 61, marks the end an espionage case that divided public opinion and became an irritant and an occasional bargaining chip between the US and Israel.
