The Facebook profile of Mossad chief Yossi Cohen's daughter appears to endorse the protest movement against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to the Ynet news site.

According to the report, the daughter, whose identity cannot be published, changed her profile picture in October to a black background with text reading "lech," the Hebrew word for "go" – a slogan associated with the anti-Netanyahu protests.

She declined to comment on the report, and as of Monday, the images had been removed from the account, according to Ynet.

Cohen, who has headed the spy agency since 2016, was previously the national security adviser and had also served as deputy director of the Mossad. He is considered close to the prime minister.

Among the operations that the Mossad carried out under Cohen’s leadership was the theft of Iranian documents in 2018 that proved that Tehran was working on the development of nuclear weapons.
