Report: Israel Reaches Agreement For The Return Of Remains Of Legendary Spy Eli Cohen

The Kuwaiti newspaper al-Jarida, considered one of the most reliable in the Arab world, reports Thursday that Israel is very close to returning the remains of Israeli spy Eli Cohen HY”D.

According to the report, the Israeli Intelligence received very accurate information about his burial place and personal possessions held by the Syrian authorities.

According to the report, an agreement was reached to transfer the remains that were found for DNA testing and if it turns out that they are Cohen’s, Israel will be willing to relax its position regarding the deployment of the Syrian army on the northern border.

According to a report in the Kuwaiti newspaper a few days ago, Cohen’s family recently heard his last words before he was executed. The recording was accompanied by sad music, and Cohen was heard talking to his wife, Nadia. He asked her to look after herself and the children, to remarry and to take care of his children’s education. The spy wanted to make sure that she told him about the children, so they would be proud of him in the future and invited her to pray for his neshama.

It should be remembered that last week it was reported that the Mossad returned Cohen’s wristwatch to Israel. Mossad Director Yossi Cohen presented the Cohen family with the wristwatch during the memorial ceremony for the Israeli spy. The Mossad said: “The precious item is now displayed at the Mossad headquarters as a signal and memory for the legendary fighter and on Rosh Hashana, the watch will be transferred to the family.”

Cohen infiltrated Syria’s leadership in the early 1960s and obtained top-secret intelligence before he was caught and executed in 1965.
