Lt. Col (reserves) Marco Moreno served in the Israeli Defense Forces’ legendary ‘Humit (504) Intelligence Unit’ which specializes in operating human intelligence agents. In the wake of the outbreak of the Syrian revolution, Moreno was tasked to develop Israel’s response. In a surprising and historic move, Moreno pioneered what is now known today in the IDF as “The Good Neighbor Perspective.” As the architect of Israel’s wide scale effort to provide humanitarian aid to Syrians suffering in the middle of the ongoing Civil War, Moreno is one of the very few people who can tell the inside story of one of the most unique and fascinating relationships in recent history in the Middle East—Israeli Jews, international Christians, and Syrian Muslims.

Upon retirement, Moreno worked to support the Good Neighbor program as a civilian by building strategic relationships with the international Christian community to chart a new path forward together in the Middle East.

He is married with three children and lives in the Upper Galil in the north of Israel.
