55 years ago today, Eli Cohen was executed by the Syrian regime. 
Expelled from Egypt in 1956, Eli Cohen moved to Israel and joined Israeli intelligence, infiltrating the highest ranks of Syria’s military & political elite.
His heroic efforts saved many Israeli lives over the years.
He was executed in Syria on May 18, 1965. 
We will always remember him and the ultimate sacrifice he made for our country.
You may remember Sacha Baron Cohen portrayed Eli Cohen in the Netflix series, The Spy.
