Hagai Amir, who helped his brother Yigal Amir plot the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, was released from prison.
Authorities at the Ayalon prison in Ramle, in central Israel, released Amir, 43, on Friday morning.
He had been in prison 16 years and has never expressed remorse for his role in the Nov. 4 1995 murder of the Israeli prime minister by his brother, a right-wing extremist.
Protesters gathered outside the prison. He greeted them with a "v" sign.
