Pollard cannot leave the country without permission and will spend at least the next five years on parole. β€œThe people of Israel welcome the release of Jonathan Pollard,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement. β€œAfter three long and difficult decades, Jonathan has been reunited with his family.” Netanyahu has reportedly asked the U.S. to release Pollard immediately to Israel.
