PM to fly from US to Moscow, prompting speculation jailed Israeli to be freed

The prime minister will depart from Washington tomorrow, but instead of returning to Israel he will fly to Moscow to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Speculation abounds, with Channel 12 news saying his visit may herald the release of jailed Israeli Naama Issachar — who is awaiting an expected pardon from Putin. Other outlets believe it is more likely the two leaders will discuss the new US peace plan.
