(Times of Israel) Hundreds of protesters gathered outside the Jerusalem hotel where US Secretary of State John Kerry is staying to demand the release of Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard from American custody Thursday.
The demonstration, initiated by the Bar-Ilan University student association, took place in front of the David Citadel Hotel, where Kerry is currently staying during his latest visit to the region.
Holding signs and chanting, some 200 people called for Pollard's release and expressed dismay over his continued imprisonment. He will be first eligible for parole next year.
