While everyone is talking about Israel’s master spy Eli Cohen because of Netflix’s series “The Spy”, you can watch this documentary that was made about his life years earlier.

Eli Cohen was an Israeli spy who did espionage work in 1961–1965 in Syria, where it was alleged he developed close relationships with the Syrian political and military hierarchy and became the chief adviser to the Minister of Defense. Syrian counterintelligence eventually uncovered the spy conspiracy and convicted Cohen under pre-war martial law, sentencing him to death and hanging him publicly in 1965.
