Israeli Intelligence Agency - Mossad

Mossad is Israel's national intelligence agency. It is one of the main entities of the Israeli intelligence community, along with Aman (military intelligence) and Shin Bet (internal security). It is responsible for external intelligence.

The Mossad is responsible for intelligence gathering, covert operations and counterterrorism. In contrast to the government and military, the goals, structure and powers of the Mossad are not bound by the Constitution of the State of Israel. However, its activities are governed by secret procedures that have never been published. Its Director reports directly to the Prime Minister. Its counter-terrorist unit is known as Kidon.

The Mossad is in charge of state covert operations, is responsible for counter-terrorism intelligence information collection, defeats the threat of terrorism, and provides intelligence for ensuring the safety of the government and security systems and foreign affairs. Its activities are designed to protect Israel's national security and to promote the national goals of its Prime Minister and Government in accordance with the laws and values of the State of Israel.

Since its establishment, Mossad has used human intelligence and signal intelligence to collect intelligence needed by the country. The Mossad worked hard to save the Jews from distress and bring them to Israel. The most prominent of these actions was Operation Moses, which brought Ethiopian Jews to Israel. The agency is and remains a major force in the fight against terrorism against Israeli and Jewish targets.
