A couple weeks ago we told you about the passing of the former Mossad chief, Meir Dagan. Today, The Times of Israel reports that after Dagan's death, his corneas have allowed two of his fellow Israelis to see:

Avraham Gian, 81, and an unnamed 70-year-old woman were the recipients of the corneas, the transparent layer that forms the front of the eye...

“I’m amazed to discover that the corneas of a hero of Israel like him were implanted in me,” Gian told Channel 10 Tuesday.

“We all owe this man, and now I most of all, because I can see because of him…. I hope to have my sight for years to come after many years of not being able to see a thing,” he said...

Dagan, a retired military general, served for 32 years as an Israel Defense Forces officer, reaching the rank of major general. He is credited with leading some of the IDF’s most daring missions, and served in the Six Day War, Yom Kippur War and First Lebanon War.
