Jonathan Pollard has come out of an operation and is not in danger, his wife, Esther, said Wednesday. She added that he is conscious but suffering from horrible pain.
“Since the news of Jonathan’s operation broke yesterday, we have been overwhelmed with an outpouring of support and concern from the Israeli people and from the Israeli media for which we are deeply grateful,” she said.
“While I am deeply relieved that Jonathan came through the operation and is now recovering, this is not a solution, just a temporary fix. He needs to come home now where he can receive the care and treatment he desperately needs,” Esther Pollard added.
“After 26 years in prison without proper nutrition or medical care, he is in a very weak and compromised state physically. Time is running out.”
