Former Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) deputy director Nadav Argaman officially takes the helm today of the domestic intelligence agency.
He will be sworn in Sunday afternoon. Argaman has spent his entire career working in the security field.
Argaman was appointed earlier this month to take over as head of the agency, replacing outgoing leader Yoram Cohen.
The Shin Bet is responsible for dealing with terrorist activities on both sides of the 1949 Armistice Line (also known as the “Green Line”).
