Download PDF for this date

Ya’acov Perri, a former head of Israel’s domestic security service, the Shin Bet, has agreed to become the prime minister’s adviser on missing and captured Israeli servicemen.

Perri is expected to replace Yossi Ginossar, who is ending his term in the post.

As part of his new duties, Perri would meet with the families of missing servicemen and coordinate contacts with organizations attempting to obtain information about them.

Perri, who is now director general of Cellcom, a cellular phone company, left the Shin Bet last year.
