The Israeli intelligence community is comprised of four separate components, each with distinct objectives. The Mossad is responsible for intelligence gathering and operations in foreign countries. The Israeli Security Agency controls internal security and, after 1967, intelligence within the occupied territories. Military Intelligence is responsible for collecting military, geographic, and economic intelligence, particularly in the Arab world and along Israel’s borders. The Center for Political Research in the Foreign Ministry prepares analysis for government policy makers based on raw intelligence as well as on longer analytical papers.
