Yigal Amir will finish 17 years in solitary confinement after shooting Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin to death in 1995. The assassin will join between one and three other inmates in a locked cell and be allowed time to walk in the prison yard for just two hours a day. Amir is serving a life sentence without parole. In the coming days he will also be able to meet with other prisoners, watch television, and receive more phone calls and visitors.
