(YNetNews) Fifty-one years after Israeli spy Eli Cohen was executed in Damascus, a Facebook page named 'Syrian art treasures' has published video footage that appears to show the execution, which took place on May 18, 1965.
The video, just under two minutes long, shows the crowd gathering, and Cohen's body being placed in a coffin, which is then placed in a vehicle and driven away.
Cohen's widow, Nadia, told Ynet, "I have seen the photos before, but I've only seen this video now. The feeling is hard, painful, and it takes me and the family back to that time period as if Eli's life was ended just now. Seeing the coffin and the body, the masses cheering and the music they composed for this operation—it's a feeling of pain and tears."
