Eli Cohen remembered on 50th anniversary of execution

Of all the members of Israel’s espionage and intelligence community, few are as well known by name if not exactly by deed as the legendary Eli Cohen who was sent to Syria and who was apprehended and executed in Damascus fifty years ago.

Had Syria returned his remains to Israel, Eli Cohen may well have remained one of the anonymous soldiers of Mossad.

All attempts to find the exact location of his grave so that his bones could be brought back to Israel for proper Jewish burial have met with failure.
