Yossi Cohen will formally take over as head of the Mossad on Wednesday.

Cohen, who for the last three years served as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's national security adviser, will take over from Tamir Prado, who has been head of the Mossad for the last five years.

Prior to heading up the National Security Council, Cohen was a 30-year veteran of the Mossad who rose through the ranks and held a wide variety of positions, including director of the department responsible for running agents around the world.

Netanyahu has not yet named anyone to take over from Cohen as NSC head.
