Eitan Ben-David, the head of the National Security Council's Counter Terrorism Bureau, will take over from Yaakov Nagel on Sunday as the new acting head of the NSC.

Ben-David, who came to the Counter-Terrorism Bureau in 2012, served in the Shin Bet ( Israel Security Agency) for 26 years in a variety of positions, including director for security in Europe, head of security at EL AL, director of VIP security, and deputy head of security.

Nagel served as acting head of the NSC since January 2016. The NSC has some 70 employees, and among its duties is to provide the prime minister with a summary of intelligence information coming in from the various intelligence services, as well as to prepare the security cabinet meetings. The head of the NSC is generally one of the prime minister's chief foreign policy advisors.
