Yamina MK Ayelet Shaked met secretly last month with Mossad chief Yossi Cohen, Walla reports.

Sources familiar with the meeting, which took place at the spy agency’s headquarters, tell the news site that the meeting was about national security matters, rather than political ones.

However, Cohen has been accused in the past by rivals of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of politically motivated leaks to the press and of other actions on behalf of the premier who reportedly views the spy chief as a political heir.

Neither Shaked nor Cohen responded to requests for comment on the report.
