Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in a letter sent on Monday to the female Israeli serving a sentence prison in Russia, Namma Issachar, wrote that "we shall not abandon anyone to their fate."
"You are on the mind of every citizen here," Netanyahu wrote. "The state of Israel and I are making big efforts to release you."
Namma's mother, Yafa, spoke with the prime minister and thanked him for his letter.
