Likud MK Anat Berko will not be appointed to head the Knesset Subcommittee for Intelligence and Secret Services, it was reported Thursday on Israel Radio.

In her place, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee MK Avi Dichter (Likud), will sit as the head of the subcommittee, as is customary.

Just a few days ago, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had indicated his intention for Berko to be appointed as the chairwoman of the subcommittee, which would have made her the first woman to fill the role.
