Jonathan Pollard is a convicted spy for Israel who had been jailed for 28 years.
But on Tuesday he was granted parole and will be released from an American jail on Nov. 21, according to his lawyer.
Pollard, now 60, began work as a Navy intelligence analyst in 1979.
He passed on top-secret government information to Israel shortly afterwards.
He was jailed for life in 1987.
Israeli gov’ t admitted paying him for the intelligence in 1998 and granted Pollard citizenship in 1995.
According to Pollard’ s laywer, he will be required to remain in the U.S. for five years under the terms of the parole.
Pollard has suffered from health issues in recent years.
He divorced and remarried during while in jail in North Carolina.
His release could help ease the tension between the U.S. and Israel that have grown over the Iran nuclear deal.
But that remains uncertain.
