Israel Appoints New Head of Shin Bet Security Agency

JERUSALEM — Israel has appointed a new head of its shadowy Shin Bet internal security agency.

In a statement from his office Thursday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that Nadav Argaman would soon head the organization. Argaman, 55, is the current deputy chief. He’s been with the Shin Bet since 1983 and spent four years as its representative in the United States.

Netanyahu said he was confident the Shin Bet would “continue to safeguard Israel’s security” under Argaman’s leadership.
