Former Shin Bet head (Israel Security Agency) Yaakov Perry on Tuesday morning said that incoming chief Yoram Cohen is "a professional with moderate views," according to Army Radio.

"The fact that he is a religious person should not interfere, though he is the first person to enter this position wearing a kippa," Perry told Army Radio.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced on Monday night that veteran Cohen will succeed Yuval Diskin as head of the security organization.

Cohen will be the first observant Jew to hold the top post.
