Former Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon joined the Tel Aviv-based Institute for National Security Studies, the policy think tank announced on Sunday.
Ya'alon will become an INSS distinguished senior fellow, and will "engage in research on several leading strategic issues, among them, Israeli policy following the nuclear agreement with Iran, and Israeli policy in face of the unrest in the Arab world, particularly in Syria and Lebanon," the Institute said.
The INSS's official twitter account posted a message welcoming Ya'alon, and a photo of him shaking hands with the Institute's director, former Military Intelligence chief Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin
