Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, the former head of Military Intelligence, took up the position of director of Tel Aviv University’s influential Institute for National Security Studies on Thursday.
Yadlin retired from the military in 2010. In one of his last public security assessments in uniform last year, Yadlin said that the country’s enemies were focused on building up missile capabilities to target the greater Tel Aviv region, and said that the military was monitoring five active fronts.

After stepping down as head of Military Intelligence, Yadlin joined the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, where he wrote about national security, force development, intelligence, civilian-military relations, and the military ethics of fighting terrorism.
Previously, Yadlin served as IDF attaché to the United States, commander of the IDF Military Colleges and the National Defense College, and deputy commander of the Israel Air Force.
“Under the leadership of Maj.-Gen. (res.) Yadlin, [the] INSS aims to continue to engage in the formulation of policy recommendations, and looks forward to enhancing its contribution to the study and public debate of the strategic issues on Israel’s national security agenda,” the center said in a statement.
The INSS’s ranks are filled with former senior defense and security officials, as well as academic experts on a host of related subjects.
The center regularly publishes paper analyzing many aspects of national and regional security. Yadlin was not immediately available for comment.
