Interview: Fifty Years Since the Death of Heroic Spy Eli Cohen


Nadia Cohen, widow of legendary Israeli spy Eli Cohen, who was killed in Syria in 1965 and whose body has still not yet been returned to Israeli soil, has accused the state of Israel of abandoning her husband fifty years after his murder.

"Now, when we demand that Hamas return the bodies of the two soldiers [Hadar Goldin and Oron Shaul, hy"d - ed.] and bring them for burial in Israel, they must do the same for Eli - we are no less than these [bereaved families], fifty years after his murder," Cohen said.
