Eli Cohen’s daughter says family worried they’re being played

The daughter of the late spy Eli Cohen, Sophie Ben Dor, downplays Netanyahu’s confirmation of a Russian hunt for her father’s remains in Syria.

“Until there is confirmed news and findings, I feel I have nothing to say on the subject,” she tells Channel 13.

“There is a sense that they are playing with us, my family, and our feelings,” she says.

“We don’t know if this is some political spin ahead of the election,” hinting that Netanyahu is exploiting reports that Russia transferred an object believed to have belonged to Cohen to the Israelis for his own political gain.

“If the prime minister knows something, he should inform us privately and not through the media,” she says.
