Israel’s recently appointed Mossad chief, Tamir Pardo, whose identity was reported here before being published in the Israeli media, has named his new senior command. His top deputy will be Yossi Cohen. No Israeli media source has yet reported his name. Israel’s News1, which calls him Y., says his most recent posting was as director of Tsomet, the department responsible for running Mossad’s agents around the world. Haaretz reports that in the earlier part of his career he specialized in intelligence gathering.
At this time, I don’t have any other specific information about Cohen or his background.
